I just swapped in an 80 tooth sprocket and new chain and having some difficulty.

The welded piece of frame that acts as a bracket for the rear of the deck is in the path of the chain, so that the chain rubs against it while running.

And, I can't figure out what path the chain should take around the tensioner. I have both sides of the chain being pushed taught by the tensioner, but I don't think that's right.

Could someone please advise how best to do this?

Thank you,

Joseph
