I'm not sure how to get the front sprocket off, I'm sure there are lots of people on this forum that can help you; its full of helpful people that know the bike kits inside and out.

3/4" not 1/4".

These chains should be run fairly LOOSE or you will encounter all kinds of bearing and tensioner problems.
