When you get them clean and loosened up, heat equal parts 90 Wt gear oil and Petroleum Jelly together (150 Deg approx.) and soak your chains it that. Agitate well and hang them up to cool and drain off. Stays in a chain much longer. I use this on Motorcycle chains also.. Really stays in them in the Winter..! Ron.

A couple of tubes of cheap grease heated up in a deep fryer works, as well. I just found my so-purposed fryer and added a tube of grease and "restored" some chains, just a few days ago.

Papa, I used to use that recipe and procedure when I was competing. I was trying to remember it recently. Thanks!
