Default my chain details, what sprocket?

well i bought a sprocket (2 1/8 diameter) for the jack shaft with a 1/2" pitch, three teeth of the sprocket fit in the chain but the teeth outside of that where too far for the chain. looking for the proper sprocket
here are my chain stats
pitch 1/2"
roller diameter 5/16
roller width 1/4"
pin diameter - between 1/8 and 3/16
link plate height - 7/16"
connecting width - 9/16"

not measured with caliper,
would you say i have a #41?

thanks

I'm pretty sure if you wire brush or clean both sides of your chain there should be markings stamped on it indicating which chain you have. Dave at Dave's Go Karts bailed me out on a similar question. #41 was stamped right on the chain itself.

Thanks

Definitely grab a new chain and master link, otherwise that one will probably fly off on the first run or ruin something.
