    Chain for JD 40 Tiller

    Hello - dropped the chain for the drivechain on one side of my JD 40 tiller. Able to fix the cover etc., but need to get a replacement chain. Circa 1980 I'm guessing - inherited from my late father in law. Tiller works perfectly well otherwise and would like to avoid having to purchase a new tiller. Having trouble locating a replacement chain. Any suggestions? Also, is this by chance #40 size chain that I could cut from a bulk length. Thanks.

    The size of chain is fairly common.
    I did a search in your area, given what you have below your avatar. If you have a Grainger in your area, that may be your best bet for something on-hand.
    Here's the Google search to give you other ideas. https://www.google.com/search?q=wher...nt=firefox-b-1

    The parts catalog says its made up of 57 links of a type 60 roller chain and any farm supply should carry it.

    Another thought is if chain isn't worn too much just acquire a chain repair tool & coupler link(see photos below) & get a connecting link then reassemble old chain. I've repaired many roller chains in the last 50 yrs.

    Many thanks for this! Could I ask where you went to look this up? I'm having a heck of a time finding info for things like this. I'm pretty handy, but am spending an inordinate amount of time just looking up info. Thanks again.

    Did exactly that through Amazon prime yesterday. Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find the other chain, but it appears as though the replacement is a fairly straight-forward exercise.

    Sure:
    1. https://partscatalog.deere.com/jdrc/
    2. in the search bar enter "40 tiller" (quotes not necessary)
    3. from the selections that come up, click on "CHAIN CASE (40) [A09] - 9"
    4. from the illustration, click on the number 23.
    5. the description will pop up in the window on the right side, the description is there.

    ** I do this in the PC browser, it very well may be different on a mobile device.

    Now that I went back through the steps, I clicked on the model 448, that has the description, but you get the idea. I see the model 40 chain description is blank, so you may want to investigate further.
