    Why? If you have the good chain they last for a couple hunded hours. Its usually something else that fails that stresses the chain and causes a failure. Those IWIS chains are excellent quality.

    Not sure if you can put an accurate hour on it , but I bet your spliting the cases for other reason before you have to for a chain. Especially IWIS
    Sc failure does not count in my comment.
    If chain goes cause sc goes , wasn't chains fault.

    If I have an engine tore down with 200 hours...its going to get a new chain regardless if it still looks good. I would probably change it if it had 100 hours...just too much work not to do it, if its all apart JMO.

    Agreed. "IF" it's already apart.
