Connecting standard DID cam chain / timing chain

Hi all

I want to replace the timing chain on my 07 FS550 soon. I've bought a new standard DID chain together with the standard joining link to suit. I know there's a ridiculously expensive OEM tool that can be used to make the join but are there any other aftermarket tools that will do this job? Removing the chain is not going to be a problem as I'll just use a Dremel.

I've found some conflicting information regarding the Motion Pro's 08-0058 breaker and riveting tool: https://www.motionpro.com/product/08-0058

I'm sure it will break the timing chain, but can it be used to join it using a master link?

Or, alternatively, are there any other cheaper tools you know of that are available online that would connect the timing chain correctly? For example, would this do the trick:

Thanks for your help.

Hi there,
this is not the recommended method or approach for this type of thing,as i am no mechanical guy, but hell , I have had a few beer , so this is what I do..

Stick the chain and link together in the motor in place,with the link on top of the cam gear, cover the hole below to stop anything falling into the motor like a rag or something.

Get your buddy to hold the square head end of an axe against the back side of the link , the rustier the axe , the better for me!

I then get a ball pein hammer and start tapping the end of the pin slighty off center with the rounded head ,or square head end, make sure your buddy has some pressure on the back side of the axe ( or other heavy ended harden steel implement), so you dont bend the cam gear or some other important item there with gentle hits from the hammer.

Keep tapping with the hammer , what you are trying to do is create a slight burred edge on the end of the pin , once it has acheived this fairly evenly around the end of the pin, then that would be it , hopefully that will hold it there until the cam chain needs replacing again. Check it, try and flick it off , with the right bur there , it should hold. All that lovely oil lube and no side loading on the burred bit, it should last. too much burred edge has the posibility of flying off into the engine , so be careful

I have done about 3-4 like this , and none let go so far.

Not reccomended by most people on this site and I do apoligise for my chioces in advance. Ha Ha
Thanks from bushmechanic and Damo W

You can do it with the "08-0058"!
I used it for a 2002 FE 501. Works. I'm not happy with the tool - but it can do the job. It's not the best tool quality but also didn't brake apart so far...

Regards,
Ede

I've done this a few times engine number

But I did it by myself lol

You can also rotate the chain till the join link is close to the clutch basket area and put a small block of aluminium between the chain and the cases

With all peining or riveting operations on chains the main thing to check is that the link still rotates freely on the pins after you've finished

Thanks for all the replies guys. I think I'll just order an IWIS chain with the clip link.
