Been hashing engineering aspects of my Sportsman Flyer80 build and why I wasn’t getting my way, chain related. Barley pop may, as well as work stress. have clouded the mind. But this is a lesson for us all. Preconceived ideas of three dimensional assemblies may hinder logical solutions. A tool I acquired after my Huffy Davidson build, really came to hand today.

Finally today, while double tasking (reading and thinking out mechanical solutions) Eureka! Unlocked the rear axel and moved it to it’s limit. Measured the chain. It had allowable slack. Same with pedal side.
