I lost the master link. Would it be better to buy a new chain.We do not have a Tractor Supply here. The replacement is a #41 chain right?Also, put a dab of silicone over the clip to hold it a little better....But I`ve never had mine come yet....The clip should go on pretty tight....
When I was in the hardware store, I got a few master links just in case....I loose the damn clips when they go fling, trying to clip it on, and I never can find it again....Plus if you take it on and off a few times the clip will get kinda sprung and won`t be tight on the link anymore....JMO....I lost the master link.

Why don't you just forget about the link?
It really is easy to punch out the pin and even easier to push the pin back into place.
I use vice grips and put a small nut on the backside of the pin so that as I squeeze the pin out with the vice grips, it has a place to go. Thsi makes the pin flush on one side of the chain and stick out a little on the other side. I then use a thin sharp punch and punch the pin out the rest of the way. Do not take the pin right out, just enough to be able to unhook the link. I lay the chain on a block of wood as I punch it out. The vice grips work really well putting the chain/pin back together if you do it in stages until done.
