Appreciate the 'Sprocketiers' willingness to carry the torch in my absence. The front sprocket chain reposition had been pretty straight forward. The "V" in the side case afforded me a better view. With the rear wheel off the ground and free to rotate (Crutch Jack) and the chain slack, a slight push/pull with your fingers to 'MISS ALIGN' while rotating the wheel/chain forward will reposition the chain. Now realize, though simple, practice is a plus. It should be thought of as 'simple and quick'. Many thanks to Brian and Fred.
Take care my Friend.........

I believe that the double front sprocket will increase the strain on the tranny shaft by putting more leverage on it.
This may shorten the bearing life on that shaft.
So, this may be a stupid question, but how do you change from sprocket to sprocket? Do you just have to remove/reinstall the chain when you want to switch with sprockets you're using, or do you have a way to switch them on the fly like on a standard multi-gear bicycle?

Didn't you see the derailleur on there?
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Changing sprockets is currently all done manually, sometimes requiring the addition or removal of a small section of chain.
It would definitely be nice to be able to change on the fly and I even played around a little trying to use a chain tensioner as a derailleur, but gave up on it as it required too much linkage travel to accomodate the extra chain links needed.
I purchased the dual front and dual rear sprocket equipped MrGizmo from Jerry and have never used all 4 of the possible drive ratio combinations. I think about it though when contemplating a longer highway adventure but always end up trail riding where the granny gearing is optimal. So the 15X47 remains available for another jaunt over Tioga and through Yosemite.
