Default My Sad Sprockets

Here are a couple of pics of my sad sprockets. I am posting because they are not like pics of others I have seen. Most of the ones I have seen looked as if they were made from plate with the only machining being a tapering of the thickness of the teeth. As a lurker I think I remember reading that the early ones had counter bores like these but my carrier is a MKII. Does anyone have a DXF of the correct profile?
Thanks,
Stephen

Hi, I believe those sprockets with a rim on them are for a british carrier, they do the same job as the others, check to see a 'TL' number not 'CTL'.#

Default Hi Kevin

I've not seen them before, A Canadian one is no different than a British one. The Australian carrier sprockets do have a shoulder on them, but nothing like these ones.

Default two types of procket on universal carriers.

Hi Martyn, You must of seen that rimmed type of sprocket!, Shauns got them on his carrier, I have seen them on three other UC Carriers, The rim go's on the outside. They only go on one way, while your sprockets like mine will go on either way round. I say british carrier as i was told they were british but saying that I have seen them on Canadian carriers. I will try and dig out some pics.......this carrier lark is all very confusing.

Kevin.

A bit like This

If you're looking for new sprokets, I could try to persuade ( ) a bloke to sell what look like 20 virgin carrier sprockets that form part of his front fence, along with variuos other Ag and Industrial wheels mixed in. He's not convinced yet.
