Arens 924024 chain gear disalinement

Hi all

Ok another problem, lately my chain keeps detaching itself and no mater what I do it keeps coming off. I've noticed the big sprocket isn't alined with the small one so and I checked the shaft with the big sprocket if it moves and it isn't loose. I will check it further this morning in my -11c shed and to find out why it's misaligned this way. Any thoughts here so it could save me some time. Here is a pic of that gear in question as you can see it's not alined with the small sprocket so like I said I will check it further this morning in the bitter cold and see what's going on.

Thanks for any good advice!!!

Serge

Worn bushings/washers on the drive shaft in my opinion.

FWIW, I am not a fan of chains, I use the X-Trac or SnowHog snow tires. I feel chains lay undue stress in the machine, as well as the operator. JMHO

Update....

I just realized you were the one on the belt issue as well, with the busted out bucket pulley bearing.

If I were you, come spring, I would do a rebuild on that machine, as looking at all the issues and condition of that unit, it looks like there is more that needs attention, as well.

Maybe it's an optical illusion but the pinion gear sprocket (background) looks too far apart like it's split? Spray some carb cleaner down there to see better maybe. The upper (foreground) sprocket assembly has some adjustment to it in the slot of the bracket if you loosen the right hand nut. Hard to tell if there is enough room in the slot to take up the apparent misalignment?
