Ok please give me a min..

You have to push out the rod to get the chain out.. Do note there are pins in rods.. to keep the rod in place.. i will send you a parts break down of the drive.

Expert:  Bill McCusker replied 4 months ago.

If you get 27 free.. you should be able to get the chain out easier..
