None whatsoever. I recommend a brand name double roller such as Comp.

That was almost mandatory 'back in my day'! Double roller wont 'stretch' as quick.... and there are no plastic teeth to end up in the pickup screen either! I am putting one on my irrigation motor right now for longevity. went with a Cloyes. (Oh what have I digressed to??) I used to 'modify to go fast, to catch women', etc etc...now it's to water corn. sigh.

I always add a chain tensioner, when replacing a loose chain. They are not expensive, and will keep the chain from stretching. The tensioner replaces the cam retainer plate, easy to install, only 3 bolts.
