Default Calculating spacing for chain drive sprockets

Since I was having so much trouble trying to figure out why my chain driven setup was popping even after making a chain tensioner, I did a little research and will now step back and punt so to speak. I will try to totally redo the layout this weekend based on what I found I had done wrong.

This is what I found in case you are attempting to use a chain drive too:

Center to Center sprocket measurments should be:
-no less than 1.5 times the diameter of the larger sprocket
-no less than 30 times the chain pitch
-no more than 60 time the chain pitch

here is the link to the site with the sprocket diameters listed

here is the link to the site with the chain pitch listings

Hope this helps you calculate your dimensions before you get started.
