What cotter pin should I use to replace the old one on the rear axle after I adjust my chain tension? Specific size, or grade? I was always taught to replace them and not reuse them...

I don't know how well you can see it in this pic, but I use a hitch pin (Home Depot should have them)
Works great and you can re use it over and over

I use whats called an R-Clip, get them at Lowes, or maybe home depot. They are great, locking clip that I use on the race bike and streetbike, don't have to worry about replacing it unless you loose it. I wouldn't worry to much about grade or any of that stuff, just something that will stay in the hole, there isn't any load on the pin.

I'd say get a couple of them when you buy it, just because you can loose them when you take the wheel off and they are very inexpensive.
