1063 throwing gathering chains

1063 corn head keeps throwing gathering chains. New lower idler sprocket and chain doesn't help. It throws it immediately after I try it. Any ideas?

Is the top or drive side shaft bent or sprocket upside down? Tension set correct? Spring catching or binding?

It's throwing the chain off. Throwing it into the snapping rolls. It happened while I was combining. Upper shaft doesn't look bent. I just combined 50 acres no problems before this. It broke the aluminum support the last time

Can the tension housing be a part of it too? If the aluminum wears out where the tensioner slides?

Just how much play is in there?

The idler needs to be laying flat, the rods tend to bend, when you slide them out of the front the rods should be perfectly straight and same for the flat iron the idler bolts to

There is steel bushings that it slides in in the aluminum housing, it's not a piston but it's not garbage

I'm sure your tensioners are bent, get something stuck in the chain and the ratcheting clutches will go till they are bent
