Hi.
I strongly recommend that you try a different make of chain, such as JWIS or Regina, and think that you will be pleasantly surprised. My chain supplier (Sprockets Unlimited) has a VERY low opinion of the smaller sizes of Renold chain. Sadly JWIS no longer make the 1/2″ X1/8″ size for magneto drive but you can use 3/16″ wide chain on the 1/8″ sprockets quite happily, but on some types of magneto with minimal clearance the chain can rub on the magneto body, so check that you have clearance before buying some. The JWIS chain is fine for Primary and Final Drive use though.
