Cheers Brucey, a picture is a good idea.
I have my half link the wrong way then according to this snap so I'll flip it over tomorrow before I run a few errands and see if it makes things better.

When I get chance I'll dig out my spare chainrings and see if I have 40, which will be two teth larger than my current chainring so should allow me introduce a full link.

I'ld to get shot of the half and leave the chain as cleas as poss.

cheers all
Gerry
