Simpson Lawrence gypsy not matching chain

We have an SL Horizon 1000 with a 3/8 Gypsy. Recently we replace the chain with G4 and we are having problems with the chain not fitting the gypsy properly. After every 4 or 5 links pass through, it jumps, skipping a link. The previous chain was G4 also. The manual indicates either BBB or HT (which is G4). Has anyone else had a problem with new chain not matching their gypsy? Is it a problem to have it skip? I'm afraid it's going to damage the windlass and with 250' of chain and a 46' boat I'm not keen on hauling it in by hand!
