    I don't know whether you will find anything on line or not. Lesco was bought out by John Deere so your best bet is a Deere dealer or a John Deere Landscapes dealer.

    Someone who may know more than I may add some info as well.

    You might start by counting them...a tooth or two up or down won't make a huge difference, especially up. Whatever you do, don't run an old chain on a new sprocket or the other way around.

    So the second sprocket is missing? If you wrap chain around the lower sprocket can you get a diameter (roughly) of what's left in the chain?
