Thanks Emil. As I said, I've already ordered a chain an sprockets. The chain is an o-ring chain.
Thanks, flitecontrol. I ordered a couple of grunge brushes on Amazon last night just before I turned off the computer. Just got on the forum so am just now seeing your post this morning . Thanks for the tip about the chain lube. Either you told me what kind of lube you use or someone else did because I've got a link to it on my desktop. Thank-ya kindly for that. All my stuff is on the way and I'll get my bike back to where it should be. I may end up making a Damascus knife out of my old chain. (always like making something out of discarded stuff!)They make a product called a Grunge Brush. Chain Brush Motorcycle Cycling Bike Crankset Grunge Brush Cleaner Cleaning Tool | eBay I bought one but never used it as it was going to splatter solvent and crud off the chain all over the rear wheel and floor.
I wet a small rag with diesel fuel (lamp oil or kerosene also work well) and rub it over the chain until the rag no longer picks up dirt. Then a dry rag to soak up any remaining solvent. Once the chain is dry, I spray it with lubricant. FYI, this is what I use, but there are many good lubricants available. Liquid Performance Chain Lube 11 oz. 0231 | eBay
