Took apart 3 old bike wheels that I had since my NY days looking for the right link to drive the worsher. There sure is a lot of grease in bike parts. Finally settled on the best combo and assembled the mechanism to go from chain to belt drive (but now I need a longer chain). Just a bit more searching through my boxes of parts, some cyphering, a good deal of welding, and the drive will be attached to the Maytag.
