Make Sure all 6 tires are the same size And the AIR pressure's are set the same ! This tends to make the machine pull or drift to one side or the other . Also you can jack it up and see if one side turns freer than the other ( same drag sorta speak)
If all is good you may just need a little adjustment to the trans ? iagree
Have this issue n my MAX, as long as my tire pressures are set to keep tire sizes equal left to right i am good to go and it tracks straight, easy to figure out and keep each tire within 1/2 PSI

I have the duromax on my Max ii with a cam and other parts it seems to have plenty of power. I think generator warehouse has a deal right now if you use code rbg for like 300 bucks. I forget the code but if you watch any of red beards garage on YouTube one of his most recent videos says the code is good til the end of February. I picked mine up for 269.99 on eBay from maxtools 2+ years ago. Sorry for the jumping around just kind of relaying what I remember as it comes to me.

Read this thread. It has a lot of possible causes.  Let us know what you come up with.   popcorn

Hey again all.   Replaced some chains, reworked chain tensioners and so far all good.   But I usually have to hold back on right stick or veers to the left.  Any recommendations what to look for?   T20 trouble? Tires? Chains?
Thx

I appreciate the responses. Correct, the chain could have been weak but makes me think how many other chains might be suspect.  In looking at the alignment of the 2 sprockets they do do line up very well.  Possible cause of chain failure or is this a bigger problem?   None of the shafts or sprockets seem to have moved or appear to be loose.  Thx

It could have been several things.  Your hypothesis is a possibility.  As wedge said a weak/worn chain.  Also check that your jackshaft securing/tightening bolts are tight and have good lock washers on them.  If those are loose or slipped that would cause the chain to slack and possibly break or you could break some teeth off of the sprocket.  The chain tensioner is only to adjust the tightness of the chain, not to secure and hold it in place.   twoCents

The chain May have been Weak . As you said it sat and you really don't know the history on it.

Do you think my hypothesis of how the chain broke is accurate?
Any other ideas what may be the cause?

OK, ran for a test drive the other day---inaugural run so to speak.   ran well, a blast to drive, but broke a main drive chain on left side after a few minutes. the vertical chain. every time I pulled back on the left stick I heard a clunk. I think the chain adjusters on the long chains came loose and bound causing the other chain to break.  I know I checked that all the chains were tight prior. is there anywhere to get new chain adjusters at a reasonable price?

I hope these pictures come thru. pain in the butt to post.
as you can see the level of the water by the rust stain.
but new motor going in this week, new throttle cable, belt, misc springs and bolts. Tore apart both drive and driven clutches and rebuilt.
The thing I am not sure of is how to connect original key start to the new motor or the choke cable to the motor. I purchased a duramax engine and made a cable connector for it.
