    Pretty much any vendor of power transmission components will have the required information for sizing their brand of equipment. I would suggest looking at a few web sites and look for a technical information section. That's usually where the engineering info section is. Worst case, select a vendor and tell them what you have. They will most likely tell you right away what you would need and a price.

    I would heavily vote against a sprocket chain, belt drives are more forgiving and less expensive.
