Sprocket

Sometimes the sprocket is very close to the tire, this can cause vibration and contaminants into your pinch point.

This can cause trunnion and riding ring damage. 

Sprocket misalignment

A common problem is drive misalignment. Sometimes its from the rotary unite being over adjusted sometimes its from the drive sprocket. Ether way it will cause sprocket  and chain failure. 

Bolt on lugs

Lugs are the best way to mount a sprocket. After the sprocket is ran out the lugs are installed they are bolted to the sprocket and welded to the shell. This lets the dryer heat up and expand with out changing the pitch of the sprocket.
