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,

Tensioner? I'm pretty sure linked the chain around the rear of the body so that'd run clear if that makes sense. Probably thinking my dual motor. Post a pic of your issue
