I replied to this post but it has not come up so please excuse if i do a double post
thank you mike .
i went outside and i can plainly see how the unit works now. the foto doesn't do the tool justice because it must be bigger than it appears in the foto.
another thank you to thomaspin . your chain replacement layout is worthy of any professional job i have seen. both your rail guide replacement and this chain replacement are wonderful. it surely clears up any doubt as to the proper proceedure.
everyone here on this site should be thankful that people like mike and thomas are willing to take the time and share their skills. they don't have to but they do.
to you 2 gentlemen and all senior members and techs thank you.
