I will give Kevin the heads-up to respond tonight. I don't know what the chain was for. I do remember working this gizmo with him; it may have just hung there.

Notice that our VT does not have the original brake mechanism (Sorry, I don't know the technical terms.) though. I found a used on on ebay and spent part of my grandmother's inheritance purchasing it. I am not sure that will make a difference in your work, Ami.

I think this hand tool was made for a variety of surge brakes. I'm guessing the chain and pin was for some other application (lock pin for the piston?). I really don't know what the chain is for. I didn't need it for anything.

The surge unit CindyL is referring to on our VT is not the original unit. She bought a 2nd one on eBay and it is slightly different than the original. We got it thinking the first one didn't work, then discovered it did work. Now we have two!
