Thanks for the pictures. Yes there is enough difference in chains to make the link count only apply to the 415 chain. Why can't you just use the 415 chain? Also, you can ever so slightly slot the left plate to pull it rearward, of course making sure everything stays very well aligned.

Did your engine come with those studs?
