    How tight does the motors chain have to be? If I make it too tight, there is too much slack in the pedal chain.

    1/2"-3/4" play is the standard I believe
    if you can get the engine chain tensioned properly just with adjusting the wheel,,,
    I have had success with using the kit tensioner on the pedal side :)
