Motojack, TW & Van all getting all their boo-boo welding or rebuilding completed in anticipation of the next trip off into the sunset somewhere.
"YOU don't need roller chainnnnnn....YOU need a DRIVESHAFFFFTTT!" Hehe... Old BMW joke.I've successfully used baling wire in place of a master link to limp me home. I also had to bale wire on the rear axle because the nut fell off, causing the wheel to fall off, causing the chain to fail at the master link. Ended up baling wiring the axle on in place of the nut and the chain on in place of the link. It was maybe 10 miles back to the truck with several stops to keep the axle from migrating out.
I also noted my o-ring and x-ring chains can not share a master link. The hole in one is smaller than the diameter of the shank of the other. In other words, the inny won't fit inside the outy. Your photo eludes to that size mismatch.
Zip tie might just work in a pinch too, at least for awhile. I'd even try them in place of an entirely missing ML Take it very easy of course. Use 'em if you got 'em.Ooh, good idea!
I will try this with some fine stainless safety wire I have, thanks .
I could not find the clip but guess it must have popped off after hoping over one of many water bars rather than breaking from some unknown force.
