It may be time to decide . buy tools take the DIY approach,
or drop it of at a shop, and save your time for other uses..
chains now have Quick links, so they will come apart and go back together.
taking it off and cleaning by soaking in a can of solvent
like paint thinner or kerosene will remove the oil the grit sticks to.
then you put it back on and re lubricate.
Park tools has a special pliers designed to make taking
apart removable quick link chains easier.
Blowing off the now clean after second Rinse, solvent
with an air compressor is a luxury.
