hello everybody

well i've decided to spend the 50 extra bucks and replace the chain. i'm doing chain rail, cam and rocker arms, tensioner, hoses, belts, voltage regulator, fuses, wood dash refinishing, leatherique, carpet and floor mats. so i figure that i'm there so why not.

so i have been studying on the rail issues for some time now and i figure i got that down fairly clear (and also with that super pictorial instruction that thomaspin shared with us). what i would like to find out is how or what i should be watching for.

what i think should happen is... crack a link in the existing chain attach new chain and with the crank bolt roll in the new chain.

does that sound about right? or are there some super tricks i should know.

thanks for all the help.
Thanks Much!
