Could anyone tell me if the chain from the bottom of the chainwheel goes over or under the drive sprocket? I btoke the chain at the rear wheel and pulled it out...

Look at this, as any other way, and the chai would not touch the lower sprocketde railur 1.jpg:-

Hi Stephen. The chain from the underside of the chainwheel goes over the 14 tooth motor sprocket and then under the jockey wheel on the swing arm.

From there it's fairly level run to the hub gear sprocket. I don't have a photo of the chainpath of that unit model, but below is the later Panasonic unit, similar except for the smaller motor sprocket:
