    my initial thought would be this -- in my head I can see the round point being good for grinding down these links;

    Im assuming chain is low grade steel and diamond bit should work ?

    Chain is generally high grade hardened steel........

    Personally, I'd use a 4 1/2" angle grinder and have at the pins until I could remove some sideplates....
    Once you get a couple of the inner plates off (and maybe a roller or two), you should be able to get a punch directly on the bound rollers.....
    IF you haven't already done it, put as much slack in the chain as you can (at the rear wheel)

    iPhone? It happens all the time with them. Apparently when your storage is close to full, it compresses your pics to save space...? I save to my computer and upload from there, always full-sized

    Not a bad idea. I was thinking small.
    probably cutting right through the links is easy enough.
    Thanks LDR for your insight... its almost as if you have years of experience to draw from :P

    and 66 - the chain is - and has been off.

    sorry guys.
    I have cut one tooth off the sprocket now. I cut almost all the links off the chain around the sprocket..
    Its just really darn pinched in there still......

    last few weeks I've been a little preoccupied troubleshooting my jeep.
    Rear pinion bearing was failing.... when it rains it pours..
