I think the pads on my micrometer are wider than the worn area, but then I only measured one roller. I’ll take a couple of duplicate measurements and see what we come up with. Worst case though, even if the new rollers were fully 0.030” too large, it’s hard to imagine that would be enough to cause a problem interfacing with the sprockets.

It looks like vikbolenystrom’s rollers match up just fine.

C2060H Double Pitch Roller Chain looks to be the closet fit. Has anyone used it for their McCormick Deering 100 Drive Chain? Thanks!

You never did say what was wrong with your chain. If it's frozen from rust, I've loosened one by liberally spraying multiple times with a good penetrating oil and then hitting the "bumps" in the chain with a hammer. It took about an hour, but once you have the links moving, the sprockets will finish the job after it's reinstalled.

Hi Bob, Drive chain frozen stiff like a broom handle. Some of the rollers deformed. I currently have the chain soaking in diesel. Have to free up the frozen spiral before reinstalling drive chain. I am worried about drive chain breaking. Thanks for the recommendations.
