    I used a building square as a flat edge, a vice and a pry bar to tweak it until it was flat- took some time, but it worked out great. I still use it.

    Ok so with some beating some prying some filing and a tensioner mod we got er to run true (more or less)... The problem now is it feels like it has drag when fully clutched, and won't stay running,.... Is it posible to have the bolts on the hub to tight, causing drag?
