I have an old mtb with a shimano five cog freewheel on the back and an indexed 5 spd shimano shifter. Chain needs replacing. was wondering should a shimano chain of the 6 speed variety work on this five spd indexed setup?

Yup. Anything through 8-speed.

Retro Grouch is correct. You want a 3/32 chain.

And I think you'll find the 6/7/8 speed chain shifts a little better than the old fiver you have on there.
