Re: Simpson Lawrence gypsy not matching chain

Like I mentioned, check the condition of the "teeth" on the gypsy. If they are rounded down on one side, that is probably the problem. 3/8" imperial G4 chain will be sitting right on the top of the RC162 gypsy, and if the teeth are worn, it probably won't work well with that chain.

Our SL manual does not mention RC162 compatibility with 3/8" proof coil chain. Interesting that yours does. However, yours also shows compatibility with 5/16" proof coil, which our manual does not mention, but as I noted above, we discovered as true.
