yeah, I put safety wire on the ends but the magnet works ok too. Only thing about the chains being down is if for some reason the motor needs to be rotated which I will some times do to have all four pistons half way up, or down. The reason being is I can turn the cams to adjust the valves although I have to remember which way I turned it so I can come back to where I left. My thinking on the split link is that the motor rotates clockwise looking at the front so the open end is leading and the closed end will keep it on when I hit the gas. The first law. Now if the motor seized it could fling itself off (the third law). I figure if that happens I have bigger problems than the split link staying in motion.

The passenger seat is 15 miles an hour faster than the drivers seat.
