Need help with craftsman6/24 snowthrower model 536.82552

I am re-pairing an older craftsman 6 hp 24 inch snowthrower, it uses a centrifigal clutch on the engine and a chain connects from there to a bigger driven sprocket . I need the correct chain for that connection. I ordered a part from sears, but it is the auger drive chain, the roller links are much to big to fit on the clutch sprocket and the driven sprocket. I need the correct size roller chain to use. (link size and pitch and chain overall length . Any help will be appreciated. A part number would be great. Sears parts diagram is very blurred and hard to read.

There are two size roller chains on this model according to the parts diagram. # 40 and #41, same pitch but 41 is a lighter version of #40.you can take your old one to any lawn mower or lawn equipment shop, and they will make one up for you. Or you can go on line and order a roll of the right chain 10' and also buy a chain splitter tool. Not too expensive. Most hdw stores have assorted chain links, etc, but most dont sell bulk chain. It is odd why this model has the two sizes. The pros might have better ideas.

I acctually made a chain myself. There are three chains. The diagrahm doesn't really do the machine justice. the one that goes from the centrifugal clutch on the engingine shaft to the driven ssprocket is a 35 . I bought a setion or No 35 roller and some extra lincks. Actually cheaper tan the short chain that would be pre made. I wrapped the chain on the sprockets, used a holding tool to hold it in place and put in the conecting link. back in business working perfect. My customer is happy. Me too. Plus I have some extra chain for next fix. By the way, the diagram doesn't show this chain.

I forgot to add. A small chizzel or punch and a hammer works just a s good for separating the chain liks. You can use a punch with a nut under the link and a wack with a hammer and puch will drive out the links. You can use thes pins and links to reconnect chai. You have to peen the end of the pins after putting the chain back together. Stays together better than using the cheap clips that come with connector links. I bought a 10 foot section of number 35 roller chain. wrapped the chain on the sprokets. marked where I wanted to break the chain and the rest was easy. It had been so long since I worked with chain that I almost forgot how. the 10 foot was cheaper that a premade 30 inch chain. I have some left for the next time.
