Most roller chain manufactures reckon 2% maximum wear without sprocket damage. I have seen 3% quoted but I think that's pushing your luck.rodp 05-19-2013, 03:06 PM
I am not familure with your machine but am very familure with chain. When its gets worn it does not ride on the sprocket right. Under a load it will ride up the teeth until it goes over them dropping...chris davison 05-19-2013, 02:35 PM
I checked the cap vent and its all the way open. I did put fuel in it but it was from the same station as last time. I'll pull the filter off and see if that's the culprit. Any more suggestions?
I was hoping you would chime in RD, great thesis. I am also going to pull the tracks and go for a ride. What would it tell me if the KLUNK is gone while the tracks were off?Badlildoggy 05-19-2013, 11:46 AM
