    So, I have a '40 CWC I've been gathering parts to build into a klunker. Just a few odds and ends and it's gonna be rolling :D. I can't figure out a chain for the thing. I have a 1/2" pitch cog on the 1941 morrow hub and a 1/2" x 1/8" chain is too small.
    Help me out here :?

    A pic would help, but based on what you said I would bet that if it isn't skiptooth then it is for 3/16" HD bike chain. Worksman uses them on their industrial trikes. You might contact ind-chuckz, he usually has an abundance of Worksman stuff.

    Thanks UCB! I think 3/16" is the ticket. Here's a picture of the hub.
