I did this for the first time a few weeks back. I didn't recall a dilemma about which way to place the tool. So it was either blindingly obvious or not an issue. Sure they would be a vid on you tube (can't link from phone)I need to remove about 6 links from a new KMC chain. Which side of the chain do I push on with the tool to force the pin out. Smooth side of pipe or dimpled?
Thanks for any advice.
Last replacement I mounted a greased chain (kinda white substance) and didn't oil it.Don’t remove the grease on it, oil it when it starts to go dry.
It is worth knowing how to join a chain the 'old fashioned' way.PS also experiment with the discarded links on rejoining links. I know you should use a quick link, but if you ever get stranded on the road and you lose the quick link, it will get you home
Must admit that up to a few years ago, I always joined chains using the "Old" method. Never had a problem with up to 9 speed chains. It was only when I had a failure with a 10 speed that it convinced me to use a quick link for 10 speeds. Will still use the old method on my SS (1/8th).
