How to adjust chain so it's even.
I went to oil the chain and had it running on a stand. I noticed it was making a knocking sound from the chain/rear axle area. I oiled the chain and that made no difference.
I was able to adjust most of it out by making the chain a bit tighter, and ran it on the stand with the axle loose. I looked at the marks, but that doesn't seem like a good way to make sure it's even.
How do you know if the adjustment is even and is adjusting the noise out a good idea because it seems a bit tight. I'll measure in the daylight, but it seems tighter.
The chain is probably very old, but I'm not in a position to change it yet, I have the 17/44 kit from that group purchase here, but never installed one.
So, can you adjust the side to side based on the sound? What is the correct sound?
I don't have the knocking, but it does sound loud. I have nothing to compare it to.
