if someone went with a 43 tooth then you might end up like the pic with no adjustment or count the links in the chain could be it was replaced with one that was 120 link and never cut to size

I would have to venture that, that is the ticket. Either a much smaller sprocket and / or too many links on the chain.

I'll see if I can make out how many teeth the rear sprocket has later today ....

First, though, it's off to the DMV in about 90 minutes for the physical VIN inspection.
