Hey Joe,
You mean there is no difference in the pitch or width or anything else?
Good to know!

Not from the hours of research I did yesterday to try to find out what is what with chains. Everything I found says the 415 is also a #42.

If anyone is doubtful, I ordered a length of #42 yesterday and should have it within a week. I'll install it and let you know what imperical testing shows.

415 chain

Not all the 415 chain is created equal. I tried a Regina 415 chain from a local motorcycle shop and it would not work. The pin spacing was correct but the bushings around the pins were bigger thus the spacing was smaller and it would not work around the ten tooth sprocket.

chain replacement

I read some days ago on this site about being sure to buy a new chain for the engine right away. can anyone tell me who I buy this chain from? I see from this post that all chains are not the same. My link bust off today from the Howell engine and I rather invest in a better chain now. Been a great help this site. Thanks to all.

Maybe the vendors of these engines know where we can buy the real fitting chain.

I also checked out some from a motorcycle shop and the bushings are larger.
