Guidelines for checking chain elongation  

In order to prevent chain backlash, measure with slight tension on the chain.
Use calipers to measure the distance between the outside L1 and inside L2 of the pins for the portion of the chain articulating around the sheave as shown in the illustration to obtain L = (L1 + L2)/2 Obtain chain elongation percentage using the the following formula.
