To determine the pitch (chain size), you’ll need to measure the distance between any consecutive rivets. The rivets are the small, round pegs/studs that hold the chain segments together. Measure from the center of the first to the center of the second.

## Is 420 chain the same as 35?

DIFFERENT CHAIN SIZES- explained

#35 Chain will ONLY fit #35 sprockets, no questions asked. #41 Chain will only fit #41 sprockets, #40 sprockets are too wide. #420 will fit on #41 sprockets, its just a little bit heavier duty with a larger pin.

## What size is #35 chain?

35 roller chain is one of many sizes that we offer in our line of ANSI/ASME standard roller chains.

…

#35 Chain That Meets Rigorous Quality Standards.

Part No. | 35R |
---|---|

Roller Diameter (R) | 0.174 |

Plate Height (H) | 0.356 |

Plate Thickness (T) | 0.050 |

Overall Width (F) | 0.232 |

## How do you measure chain size?

To measure the chain size, if you have just the sprocket, use calipers to measure between the teeth. Measure from center to center of where the chain roller would set between the teeth that will give you the pitch. Once you know the pitch you can determine what chain size you would need.

## Is 420 chain the same as 40?

Active Member. 420 chain is stronger than 41, it has larger pins, the 40 is a little wider, same pin size as 420.

## Which is bigger 35 or 40 chain?

The main difference between the 35 and the 40 chain is that one is rollerless and the other has rollers. The two chains also have different pitches and diameters, which will limit their interoperability. Additionally, the 40 chain is rated for a significantly higher tensile strength and working load than the 35.

## What size is a 420 chain?

Metric Dimensions

Chain | Pitch | Roller Diameter |
---|---|---|

420 | 12.70mm | 7.75mm |

428 | 12.70mm | 8.51mm |

520 | 15.88mm | 10.16mm |

525 | 15.88mm | 10.16mm |

## What are chain sizes?

Chain standards

Size | Pitch | Maximum Roller Diameter |
---|---|---|

50 | 0.625 in (15.88 mm) | 0.400 in (10.16 mm) |

60 | 0.750 in (19.05 mm) | 0.469 in (11.91 mm) |

80 | 1.000 in (25.40 mm) | 0.625 in (15.88 mm) |

100 | 1.250 in (31.75 mm) | 0.750 in (19.05 mm) |

## Will a 40 chain fit a 35 sprocket?

No. A #40 chain is 1/2″ between the pins and 5/16″ inside width. A #35 is 3/8″ between the pins and 3/16″ inside width. There is no way it will work.

## What is chain pitch?

Chain pitch is the size of the chain and is defined as the distance between any three consecutive rivets divided by two.

## What size chain binder do I need?

Four chains of 2,000 lbs WLL each will equal 8,000 lbs total, enough capacity to secure an 8,000 lb load. Each binder must also have a WLL of at least 2,000 lbs. A good rule to follow is to always use binders that have an equal or greater capacity than the chains they will tighten.

## Will a 420 sprocket fit a 40 chain?

The pitch will be the same but a 420 motorcycle chain is narrower than an ANSI 40 or 41 chain, so no it won’t fit.

## Is 40 chain the same as 428?

Nope! the heavier roller from a 428 chain means the teeth of a 428 sprocket are of a different shape, sure the 40 rollers fit and there’s no binding or such..

## What does a 420 chain mean?

Chain size is in inches, the three digit number used to describe the chain size is based on the “rule of eights”. The first digit is for chain pitch. This is the distance between the pins. … For example, a 420 chain has a pitch of 4/8″ = 1/2″ (12.70mm) and a roller width of 2.0/8″ = 1/4″ (6.35mm).
