Make sure the sprockets are aligned properly.

check that you have the correct size (pitch) chain for your sprocket. that would be the most likely cause if the chain is properly tensioned.

I would try to use the rear end that the was with the motor you have.

This is a mower I built a few years ago. I used a 185 Honda motor, and rear end. It was fun!
