    chain link slightly seized

    So, one of the links of my chain "slightly" seizes... I can adjust it back to its original position by hand, and after a revolution, it ends up about 1/16th of an inch lowers... the chain is NOT stretched. I noticed this because under a load the chain skips a bit...

    Any way to fix the seizing? I think it happened after I tried to take the pin out with a crappy tool and couldnt. The pin is flush on both sides...

    Thank you!

    Every chain tool I have seen has a second seat used for "cracking" the chain to prevent tight links, it always the seat farthest from the anvil...just give it a press with the tool and she will loosen up.
