    Hello, I have commercial salt spreader roughly 1.8 CUYD. The conveyor is chain driven. The chain on the one side seems to have a link or two that isn't as flexible at the linkage area as it should be and it is almost skipping the cog gear when it reaches it. I have sprayed them down with a transmission fluid / diesel mixture before and after each storm but it doesn't seem to get any better. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to free this link up so I don't end up breaking something?

    Thanks in advance

    Agreed, have you tried heat?
