Of course for this to work the remaining part of the chain has to be over the rear sprocket - more the wrap the better - tape or tie the loose end of the chain as far around the sprocket as possible to hold it when you try it - DON'T TRY TO HAVE SOMEONE HOLD IT IN PLACE WITH THEIR FINGERS!
Worked like a charm on the first try. Thanks dudes.

So, all went well in OK except for one thing....I hit a washed out area in a big sand bowl and totally grabbed brakes when I shoulda been giving it gas, crashed like on top of my head and a 6' drop, it hurt. Next kick, the kickstart lever gave way and snapped off. Spent the rest of the day push starting the thing...only stalled it twice Sat. afternoon. Scheduled breaks occured at the top of the hills so I could roll it downhill.

RED RIVER WAS OFF THE HOOK!!!!!!!!!!!

reading FTW FWIW, a grinder would have been a PITA...too tight of space w/out posiibly hitting the frame, shift lever, and countershaft sprocket.
