    Bike rear sprocket and make your own pawl if you need a bigger one.

    I dont see why not, its pretty much all that holds the spare wheel up on my MK Bedford. Thats got a chain welded to it with a bar that picks up on two wheel studs.

    i'd be looking at a ratchet strap mechanism, or a freewheel mech off a pushbike.

    ratchet straps can usually be picked up off the side of most A-roads or motorway.

    freewheel? I'll post you one.

    Not sure is this any use, these are used on Landrover 2.25 engines to tension the timing chain

    Make them cut and file the parts from steel.

    That will teach them basic marking out, chain drilling, hacksawing and filing skills. :thumbup:

    Good theory, but knowing my two I’ll have to do the lions share of work

    That’s one reason to give them the task: see if they have the commitment to get the job done. :D
