    Hey there everyone, I havent been posting since my last build out last year but have been keeping up iwth the forum. I am curretnly building a schwinn jaguar and was wondering if anyone else had chain alignment and tensioner issues on a jaguar build. I have got it tunning but keep throwing chains.

    I had problems keeping the tensioner in proper alignment
    I ended up using a thick piece of rubber on the inside of chainstay to keep tensioner from moving

    I'd just cut the tensioner fully, does the bike have vertical dropouts?

    the rear axle doesn't move in the dropouts (7sp derrailleur)

    chain tensioner woes still

    well i have since tried the tractor supply co tensioner, its nice but i cant get it to keep from spinning on the bolt I mounted it on, its a 3/8 bolt and fits tight in the body of the tensioner, should i try to suprman it down some more or loctite it in place, let me know what you guys think, last ditch anwer may be to go back to using the **** tensioner, by the way the motors purring great and h i have had many trips to the bar with it that were fun!
