d3 undercarriage repair cost

Just acquired this older 73 model and brakes, clutches and undercarriage are needing attention. The engine, transmission and appearance of the old machine is in very good to good condition and runs and operates as it should. It does not run hot or quit pulling after an hour or so. Wondering if anyone knows the current real cost to replace chains and sprockets. I have read all posts but the only cost estimates were several years old that I found. Naturally I want to get by as reasonable as possible, probably with aftermarket parts as the machine will be used for hobby and personal use only. My rails are already measuring 25 and 1/32 inches over the 4 links which puts it at 100% worn out and the sprockets are worn to sharp edges but nowhere ready to start jumping teeth. The rollers and idlers look pretty good and should get one more run out of them as the wear on the chains are nowhere near the pin bosses yet. Also wondering how many hours is left before the rails and sprockets are to the point of not running any more or causing more damage than I am getting good out of them. The pins and bushings have not been turned and my chains have the quick connect alligator link so they have been replaced before. From what I have read turning p&b's is not practical on these small tractors. Is that a fact? Like I said, just trying to get by as resonable as possible. Lots of questions and kind of long winded post. Thanks for any responses in advance.
