    Check with Jeff Sikkema first. He's the only GB dealer I'd buy from.
    Look in the memberlist for jsikkema1 or something like that. His profile has his website address, email, etc.

    E-mail me direct at [email protected] and I can send you a scan
    of the catalog. Then you can just put your old sprocket on top of
    the catalog page to see what size you need. I have found that when you buy the whole GB sprocket system, the spline size may
    be different from the original. As a matter of fact, I have been
    encountering several problems with selling the GB bars and
    sprockets, but if you can get the product to fit correctly, works
    well.

    Although intended to be informative, I imagine this post will also serve a secondary purpose.

    Rob, on how to tell, compare what you've got with what you see on page 2 of <a href="http://www.oregonchain.com/pdf/sprockets/RimSproxFB0601.pdf">this</a> 102KB PDF document.

    Jeff's monolithic web site is at http://www.snssawshop.com/ in case you haven't excavated that URL yet.&nbsp; His contact information is right at the top, so you can kill the page loading almost immediately and save the <i>several</i> minutes needed for the images if you're on a POTS modem.

    What secondary purpose? You have dirty pictures on that link you
    posted? I would download it, but I don't have all day.
    My computer still runs on firewood, and is slower than all of yours

    Rob, you need to just go to your e-mail program and type in
    [email protected].
    If you go through the AS private messages, I cannot send you anything.
    After this deluge of e-mails, I guess I need to try and dig out the GB catalog, and no, I will not print the whole ???? thing and
    e-mail it.
    I have contacted GB in Au. to check out this thread, so they will be awake in a little while and may help.
    Stens sells GB bars and sprockets, as well as Carlton chain.
    Jackssmallengines sells Stens stuff, so check them out

    Slower Fish?&nbsp; Mine's a Pentium II at 233 MHz.&nbsp; It just occurred to me that if you'd had a letter jacket, it would probably have an "80" or an "81" on it.

    When I click on the email address you gave (as it's presented to me in the web page) I get a netscape messenger compose window.&nbsp; I wonder what Rob's doing?

    I see Pierre-Luc still has the server set so that GMT uses daylight savings time (when in truth it does not).&nbsp; He'd told me he was going to fix that.&nbsp; We don't have to suffer the time change in (most of) Indiana, thank God.&nbsp; So this post I'm making at 11:54 AM EST (16:54 GMT) is going to appear to have been made at 12:54 PM EST (17:54 GMT).&nbsp; It's obviously not 17:54 GMT yet...

    Amazing how a simple offer to email some info must degrade into basic email usage- 101. Geez, anyone who has used a computer more than 2 days should know how to use email. :rolleyes:

    Brian,
    stop mooing publicly, the neighbors are getting suspicious.
    I know you are reffering to an e-mail you have sent me, but I haven't seen it yet! Send it again. Please.

    Why tie yourself to the one source? Herr Manufacturing is the predominant maker of sprockets they brandname for several suppliers.
    They have a website. I get mine thru Tilton under the Total brand.

    Rims are rims, a commodity. Most dealers should have boxes of them.

    I'm not limiting myself to just one brand it'sjust that I have had very good luck with GB in the past on my 064av,but the guy that I bought them from went out of business about a year ago..
