Hi J.L.,

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I dont know off hand any online 
vendors who supplies engine sprockets. A local FORD dealers/garage will 
order in special parts for me if I have the correct type etc. Sprockets 
and pulley wheels can be ordered as well. I suggest you look for a similar 
main garage etc. as they should be able to order the same for you. A local 
engineering supply store may also be able to order some custom sprockets 
in for you.
The center of the sprockets is usually very small (dia 8mm or 1/5"), and 
you have to drill the hole out yourself to the 1" diameter. You might be 
able to order a sprocket with a 1" inside bore.

Best of Luck,

I am plan to use a chain and would like to know if you have a found a vendor who supplies an engine sprocket for a 1” shaft?
