Looks like that would work as long as you don't have to move the wheel rearward much more. Mike

Before I welded the slotted piece on the frame I mocked up the trans and rear wheel with the chain on. I adjusted the wheel with the adjusters and then centered the slotted piece. I don't think I'd need more than that for stretch. I think it'll work fine. Jim
