I have a new chain that i put on our car right out of the package and it seems to be pretty stiff, Is there a certain lubricant out there for chains that will loosen it a little?

Thanks Steve

Soak chain, preferably overnight, in some sort of solvent, agitate frequently

Blow out chain and let dry

Spray down chain with Tri-flow, work into chain then wipe off extra

Dont ever use chain lube

I would do everything Clouse said, but I use Fluid Film instead of Tri-Flow.  We have used it about a year now and not one grain of that nasty Florida sand sticks to it anywhere.  Plus they give it to us free, so that helps with the decision. Smiley
