    McMaster-Carr is a good source for a high quality #41 chain which I just bought to replace the Grubee kit chain. The #41 has wider rollers making it better to accomomdate misaligned sprockets or sprocket teeth.

    There's also a profound difference between the grubee chain and a #41: When lined up side by side, there is a slight difference between the lengths of the links, so at the end of 5 feet, the links don't match. This is probably one of the biggest causes of sprocket problems for grubee kits. The grubee chains should be immediately discarded after purchasing the kit.

    My local Ace hardware carries it on the shelf along with half links and the master links.
