Yes I would use a Dremel and cut off wheels to cut it off.
All you really need to do is cut the ends off one link and drive that link out.

You need to be looking at both sides of both chains. You will only find the master link on one side of each chain. All the rest of the links will look the same.

Any chance you can get photos of both sides of your chains. Wow, I don't see how the chains could have been put on without using a master link.

Look for the little retainer clip to find the master link

Just take the pump off as a unit, it slides off the front crank shaft, its a hella lot better this way, those double roller chains isn't cheap, and as for the rebuild of the Cessna control valve, Eaton sucks for support or parts, I tore down and bought seals to repair, I had to buy them 100 at a time, but I have the seals.

Same here, slide the pump off. I was able to work on the radiator, alternator upgrade, and wiring with the front loader on the ground.

Talk about timing...you posted a day after I cut those chains off. No master links on either one. Oh well. I shall rebuild or replace 'em. But lesson learned about sliding the pump off.

Spent the evening trying to hunt down that seal kit. No kidding about lack of service/ support information. Think I found a place that sells 'em but at $8 each and a minimum order of $50...sigh.

I'm curious with no master links how was the chain put on in the first place?

The master links are about $3 each, not available from Kubota dealer. Got them from a bearing supply company.

The replacement chain with the master link was about $25 from Kubota this past March.
