1) Use Nashbar w/o the masterlink, as I do w/ SRAM.
2) If your SuperMaxy crank mounts the inner chainring to an integral spider/outer, replace the spacers with slightly narrower ones.
3) I have heard of 7-8 speed chains, which also work well with ultra-6 and most "standard" 5- and 6-speed rigs, and I have heard of 9-speed chains, but never 8/9.
4) Are your cogs and/or your derailleur pulleys worn? This could be the source of your chatter.
5) I use SRAM PC-58s on all of my standard-6 and ultra-6/7 freewheels without problems, although I can make the chains skate over the teeth of both Regina standard-6 and (ultra)-7 freewheels. This may be a function fo the 2-tooth progressions I tend to favor (13-15-17-19-21-23 and 13-15-17-19-21-24-28).
