while this is a great idea.
ive got a question. how do you set the pin depth?
on my rivet tool, theres a small recessed area, tha lets the pin go back so far, then stops it. keeping it flush with the rest.

how did yours look when you were done?

tried 2 different impact guns, big ass breaker bar, heat, reverse threading....nothing would break the thing loose. yes i bent back the safety washer or whatever it is.

Any idea what kind of torque the impact wrench makes? What psi were you running them with? Drive sprockets are a bitch............

not sure about one but i think it was the more powerful of the 2. on was a craftsman rated to 90 psi but not sure of the fl/lbs, the compressor was putting out more than 90 psi at one point and still nothing. would it make a difference if i wasn't using an actual impact socket with the gun??

The socket wouldnt make any difference, except that an impact socket is made to stand the abuse of continuous high torque impact. I think your gonna need a gun with a higher torque rating..................

actually, the socket can make a difference. i see it all the time.

use an impact socket. since usually they are thicker/heavier. and use the shortest one that will fit completely over the nut. and make sure its the right size. a tiny bit big, might work, in theory. but you lose a lot of strength with it rattling around on the nut.

Sorry dude, I just now saw this question as I scanned back over this thread.

My new chain came with shims that you place above the o-rings to keep the link plates properly spaced. I'll post pics later for those who want to see them...........

Will this work on an EK chain with the pin rivets? They say to use their special tool, but thats at least $50 i dont want to spend.
