With the right wrench loosen the two rear wheel's axle nuts a little bit so you can slide the wheel back to tighten the drive chain's drooping. Be sure the wheel is still staying centered between the rear frame's arms. Tighten the two nuts each only a 1/4 turn at a time and alternate the tightening of each nut until they are very tight. The chain is allowed to have a little 1/4" droop. Do not make it very tight.

SOURCE: Chain Engagement ! Two-sprocket bike, no

Without a picture this is too difficult to diagnose properly. take it into your local bike shop, any competent mechanic should be able to spot the problem easily. Guessing from your description that the crankset (front cog) is too wide for your chainline and needs to be respaced, but can't give the solution without knowing what is causing the spacing issue.

Other than the ticking sound is there any problem? The gearing is planetary and has its own 'normal' sounds depending on what ratio is selected.

Maybe it needs specific tweaking.

I have a bike that I don't know what it is the only number on it is M753.

It sounds like possibly a mish-mash of parts. No such thing as a 3sp track bike, although there were 3 speed fixed gear hubs. Without a picture it's not easy to help further.

    How to keep my gears from slipping

    Firstly ensure the derailleur is in good condition and not bent so the chain is running perfectly in line with the sprockets. Ensure the stop screws limiting the extent of the travel of the derailleur are set correctly to prevent travel beyond the first and last sprocket.

    A badly worn chain could need shortening or replacing in order to provide the correct chain tension or a loose chain could be a matter of a derailleur that hasn't seen the oil can for a while and is not tensioning the chain correctly.
    If the bike has been involved in an accident the rear forks could perhaps need some adjustment so a straight edge laid alongside the main chain-wheel coincides approximately with the middle of the rear sprocket cluster.

    At this stage it is also wise to ensure the gear cable is in A1 condition, smooth operating and properly oiled with no internal frayed strands causing problems.

    If your gear selectors are of the modern style with detents the gear cable needs adjusting so the centre of each detent at the gear selector positions the derailleur precisely below the selected sprocket. Once this is done if everything else mentioned above is ok the gears should now operate smoothly and positively.

    If adjustment doesn't work then the problem is likely to be with the basic requirements above.
    Good luck!

    Adjust chain on a womans city ii 3 speed internal gear rear wheel

    Loosen the rear wheel nuts. Move the axle forward to loosen or backward to tighten, keeping the tire spaced equally between frame and brake. Adjust so that chain is in that "sweet spot" between binding because it's too tight and slapping against the chain guard because it's too loose.

    Some models have screws in the frame at the rear axle that make this job easier. Note that it's likely that you'll need to adjust the gear shift cable after moving the axle. Good luck, and happy riding!

    Bike chain skipping

    Bike chains are slightly different determined by amount of cogs on rear sprocket. If you havent changed the chain, adjust the tension of chain.If tension is ok-sprocket would be damaged(teeth worn,slightly rounded)but if same prob on different gear, chain tension/incorrect size chain is problem.
    Hope this has been helpful..

    I would like to have a diagram of the timing comfiguration of a 2002 dodge intrepid 2.7 .....i am very interested in the timining marks for the camshafts

    Hi, this engine uses plated links in the chain to match marks on the gears. See figure and installation procedure below. Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for using FixYa.

    1. Install the timing chain by performing the following procedure:
    1. Verify that the crankshaft sprocket timing mark is aligned with the mark on the oil pump housing.
    2. Place the left side primary timing chain sprocket onto the chain, while aligning the timing mark on the sprocket to the 2 plated links on the chain.
    3. Lower the chain with the left sprocket through the left cylinder head opening.
    4. Loosely position the left camshaft sprocket over the camshaft hub.
    5. Align the plated link to the crankshaft sprocket timing mark.
    6. Position the timing chain around the water pump drive sprocket.
    7. Align the right camshaft sprocket timing mark to the plated link on the timing chain and loosely position the sprocket over the camshaft hub.
    8. Verify that all the plated links are aligned to their proper timing marks.
    1. Install the left lower timing chain guide and tensioner. Torque the bolts to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
      NOTE Inspect the timing chain guide access plug O-rings before installing. Replace damaged O-rings as necessary.
    2. Install the timing chain guide access plug to the left cylinder head and torque to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
      NOTE To reset the timing chain tensioner, oil will first need to be purged from the tensioner.
    1. Purge oil from the timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    1. Remove the tensioner from the tensioner housing.
    2. Place the check ball end of the tensioner into the shallow end of the Tensioner Resetting Special tool 8186.
    3. Using hand pressure, slowly depress the tensioner until oil is purged from the cylinder.
    4. Reinstall the tensioner into the tensioner housing.
    1. Reset the timing chain tensioner using the following procedure:
    1. Position the cylinder plunger into the deeper side of the Tensioner Resetting special tool 8186. Apply a downward force until the tensioner is reset.


    Ensure that the tensioner is properly reset. The tensioner body must be bottomed against the top edge of the Tensioner Resetting Special tool 8186. Failure to properly perform the resetting procedure may cause tensioner jamming.

    1. Install the chain tensioner into the right cylinder head.
    2. At the right cylinder head, insert a 3 / 8 in. square drive extension with a breaker bar into the intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate the camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns with the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and torque to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
    3. Turn the left camshaft by inserting a 3 / 8 in. square drive extension with a breaker bar into the intake camshaft drive hub. Rotate the camshaft until the camshaft hub aligns with the camshaft sprocket and damper attaching holes. Install the sprocket attaching bolts and torque to 21 ft. lbs. (28 Nm).
    4. If necessary, rotate the engine slightly clockwise to remove any slack in the timing chain.
    5. To arm the timing chain tensioner: Use a flat-bladed prytool to gently pry the tensioner arm towards the tensioner slightly. Then, release the tensioner arm. Verify the tensioner extends.
    6. Inspect and replace the timing chain cover gasket and oil seal.
    7. Apply a 1 / 8 in. (3mm) bead of sealer at the parting line of the oil pan and engine block.
      NOTE When installing the timing cover, guide the seal over the crankshaft to prevent damage to the seal-s lip.
    Install or connect the following:

    Timing cover and gasket and torque the M10 bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm) and the M6 bolts to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm)

    Accessory drive belt tensioner pulley

    Power steering pump

    Crankshaft damper

    Crankshaft center bolt and torque the bolt to 125 ft. lbs. (170 Nm) using tool 8191

    Accessory drive belts

    Fan module and electrical wiring harness

    Upper radiator crossmember

    Negative battery cable

    How do I reattach chain after it slipped off

    Normal 0 This will be the basic instruction for most common saws. Check that the chain brake is in disengaged position by moving the front hand guard towards the front handle if the saw is equipped with a chain brake on the handle. Loosen the bar nuts on the clutch cover. Loosen tension screw or other adjuster (thumbscrew) to allow the bar to be moved toward the engine. Some saws have this tension adjustment built into the bar. This will provide enough slack in the chain to able to reinstall it. It may be necessary to remove the side cover to gain access to the clutch/gear assembly on the side of the engine if the chain also jumped the gear here. Remove the cover, inspect for any debris or other obstructions in this area. If none, replace the chain back over the drive gear and in the bar groove all the way around the bar. It may be necessary to turn the bar adjuster screw more to provide enough slack in the chain to do this. Once the chain is in place reinstall the cover and bar lock nuts. Snug up the nuts but do not tighten these. Turn the bar/chain adjuster screw to tighten the chain on the bar (take up slack). I usually tighten to a point where there is no slack between the chain and the bottom of the bar and I can still turn the chain easily around the bar by hand. With experience you will get the feel for this chain tension. Once the chain is properly tensioned, tighten the bar lock bolts/ nuts on the side cover. I hope this helps you out.
