If it’s ratcheting it’s probably because your track is too loose and the track is slipping on the drive cogs. You’re gonna have to clean the chaincase , you have a bunch of metal filings about adjuster screw. This being your first sled You’re gonna have to do a once over check brake fluid antifreeze and chaincase levels. I don’t know how many miles you put on sled with the chaincase dry. Can’t be good for the chain.

You have to ask yourself where did the oil go. How long was it without oil when previous owner had it. Before you put oil in case loosen off the track and chain in chaincase and see if there’s any play in drive and jack shaft. How many miles on sled.
