Roller Chain Dynamic Simulation

I am trying to simulate the effect of gravity forces on the chain drive for two orientation i.e one in which the axis of the sprokets are there in the horizontal plane and the other in which the axis of the chain in vertical plane. I want to see the effect on torque for constant power supply for both of these configuration. While modeling the chain drive with the design accelerator tool and bringing that model in to the simulation environment, the results shows that the tangential force on the chain is remaining same no matter if you are orienting the model vertical or horizontal (by changing the direction of the gravity for the same model)

Please help me to show where am I going wrong
