    how was the build? im guessing youll need more chain.

    Advice: order a tool that can break 415 chain.
    its a though job.

    The solid end of the "chain link clip" should flow in the same the direction the chain is going that way it stays closed no matter what..

    USE LOcK TIGHT! it works!

    Buy some exhaust wrap....its not a most but keeps the heat inside the muffler.

    use rubber between parts...old wheel or tube

    what else...what else...oh yeah run that chain tight, no wobly chain
