Right then Brian 2…
Re the three arcuate slots in the sprocket face. I had some interesting replies when looking up “arcuate.”
The bow shaped slots do not allow any movement as the bolts are a tight fit.


I have new cush rubbers and bolts from from the spares scheme but the bolts are not great and I have decided to replace them with new purpose made bolts with hex heads. Sorry but I want function over form.
The new cush rubbers will need fettling to fit.
A new steel ring will need to be fabricated.
The arcuate slots will need to be reprofiled to allow movement.
The inner bore of the sprocket has some wear but I am prepared to live with that for the time being.
Brian thanks for the checklist unfortunately I appear to have ticked most of the boxes.
