1. Thread handle onto main press body
2. Install grooved pad plate into bottom of main body (stationary side)
2. Install the pad plate with two holes into the upper side of the press tool (Side with movable
hollow bolt ). At this time your plates should oppose each other so the plate with two
holes can allow the master link pins to move into the holes freely.
3. Install chain onto vehicle. Merge chain onto rear sprocket so you have a platform in
which to use the Chain Press Tool (it’s not necessary but makes installation easier).
4. Install connecting link from the inside of the sprocket. Insert the link so the pins
are pushed all the way through. And lightly install connecting link plate. Do not
forget to install any O-rings (if you have an O-ring chain) prior to installing the
5. Now , slowly screw the body bolt (hollow bolt) with the pad that has two holes down
on to the press fit plate until the plate is seated against the chain face and the link
fitment is snug. Caution!! Do not over tighten chain link for it will create binding and may
cause chain wear.
6. After connecting link plate is installed to the link. Use Motion Pro master link pliers for clip type master links to install the clip. The open end of the clip always faces away from the drive direction. Or use the Motion Pro chain riveting tool #08-0058 to stake the master link
plate into place.
