fit a Victor engine sprocket and primary chain to WD B40
« on: 22 January, 2018, 15:08:43 »
Can you advise if the standard chain will fit with the 28 tooth sprocket from a Victor to improve WD B40 gearbox
Any suggestions as to where to buy from, TSM have the 28 tooth sprocket for 33, no idea about chain.

Thank you
Paul

The standard sprocket for a B40WD is 18T according to the parts book. This means that with a 28T sprocket, the chain would need to be ~5 links longer. So simple answer, is that the standard chain will not be long enough. However, according to my calculations, you would need a 22T gearbox sprocket to make 4th gear the same as a standard B40.
