    You don't need a chain breaker. I just use a small socket slightly larger than the pin to set the chain on, then pound the pin until it's flush with the chain and use a punch to knock it the rest of the way out.

    Lilffihn,
    Not all of us use a chain breaker. Some, like me, grind the ends of the pins flush with the cheek plate then punch the pins out, some simply punch without grinding. Either way works eliminating the need for a tool. Remember that with a roller chain you'll need to remove two links to get the master link to work. It requires two rollers on the ends of the chain. Hope this helps get you on the road. Now go get some gas, mix it at 20:1 and ride. Get back to us with the results, and pictures. Ride careful and have fun.

    I think I'd at least invest in a punch. A nail will bend pretty easily, which can be frustrating. I've used a nail set when I couldn't fine the punch.

    I assume you're talking about the small engine sprocket? Pull the clutch lever, & use a flat tip screwdriver to turn the sprocket & feed the chain through!

    Also it will turn more easily if you first remove the spark plug. Most kits come with a tooldfor turning that. It looks like a spark plug socket. Or if you have a socket set, find one that fits. Turn the sprocket as you feed the chain in.
