    Hi,
    I am building up a de vere 507 and have a question about the chain in the base that is used to change the heads position.
    I find that the chain is quite loose, so when rotating the wheel it comes of the sprocket quite easily. (see pics)
    At the top there is a plastic thing that can be used to adjust the chain but even in the most left position the chain is loose.

    So i must have done something wrong here.
    Does anybody know if the chain is running wrong over the sprocket and plastics wheels???

    thanks.

    Willie Jan.
