I am interested in putting a Sturmey Archer 3 speed SW (1958) hub on my bike and I'm having trouble with the compatibility between the chain and the cog on the hub. The teeth on the cog are a touch too far apart to mesh well with the chain.
Not sure what the chain is, but it works fine with the Williams c34 style chainrings on the front of the bike, and worked well with the Shimano 5 speed freewheel that used to be on the back.
Is there a difference between the chains used for Sturmey Archer hubs and those used with other gear systems? If so, do chainrings compatible with the Williams c34 come in the same pitch?
Hope someone knows what I'm dealing with here. I've taken the hub apart, and aside from being a bit dry, the parts all seem in good shape. I'm looking forward to giving it a go on this bike!
