chain wanted


Recommended Posts

I have a 1913 MW auto wagon. I thought for sure that I could find some chain, but after searching, talking to other IHC owners and chain distributors I could not find any. i did hear that Diamond made a special run of it some years back. I narrowed my sprockets to fit ANSI standard and bought NOS cottered chain. Jim

Thanks for the replies, I have chain now but was going to put on new and did not want to modify my sprockets.

I would post some pictures but that probably won't happen with my computer skills [screwed up the log in]lol.

The IHC is one we have had since 1947 and I have driven it 35 yrs. ago. It has sat in a museum mostly.

The Packard is a 1937 120 convertible coupe we have had for 50 yrs. it does get driven regularly.

That is a great looking 13 truck, I do not have the top for mine, but would like to get one, I really like the look.

Tops for these are not a problem. White Post Restorations had one that we fabricated an entire new top, from body and top irons to bows to fabric. Irons should be available from the fellow in Auburn California, bows easily had, and if the body isn't ironed for a top, those parts aren't that hard to fabricate.

Somewhere I have a picture of the top made ...it did look great....

Did you find new 5/8 wide chain ??

My top was made by an Amish buggy shop and cost around 1000 dollars. I am happy with it. I made a frame/jig with metal tabs on it that was the same dimensions as the tabs on my seat. He built the top on the frame in about 2 months. The irons and top bows are available he cuts, sews, and attaches the top material.

No, I have not found new chain. My truck needs around 25 ft. I was wondering about having some made up, maybe 1000ft. enough for about 40 vehicles. Did you take a little off each side of your sprockets to fit the ANSI chain? That is probably the easier way to go. I will probably use my old chain for now. How far is a person going to drive one of these trucks? But I do have a small wager on driving it to Tim Hortons [10 miles]. Man the things I will do for a free coffee.
