Chain?

Hello, I have a NOS Regina 6 speed freewheel, it does have the notch tooth pattern, as it is a ORO. So, new Everest chain, age of both parts seems to say they should work together smoothly. Not, I have the infamous chain riding up on top of the cogs before finally settling down. So, what chain modern, etc. should I try? I am not changing the freewheel. Thanks road195

I have a 6-speed Regina America with 2-tooth progression. I have to shift and apply power a bit carefully to avoid having my SRAM PC-58 chain ride up on the 19T cog, against the 21T. This means no emergency power shifts while climbing.

I recently cobbled together a 13-15-17-19-22-25 out of parts of two Regina America 6-speeds (13-15-17-19-21-23 and 14-16-18-20-22-25), and the 19-22 gap seems much better-behaved with the same chain.
