Yes, on the starter mount.
I don't recognize that sprocket part number. How many teeth does it have?

ok I counted 28 teeth

Its not a Cat sprocket rim, the easiest way to find out pitch is to give us the link part number-if you have the chains.

Even tooth sprockets are non hunting tooth. Means the same bushings hit the same teeth of the sprocket. To get full wear of all the sprocket teeth somewhere in the life of the chain it will need to be jumped one tooth to distribute the wear.
Odd number tooth sprockets are hunting tooth. The chain automatically advances from tooth to tooth to distribute the wear.
