I am fixing to do the same. I think you have to remove the stator assembly to get to the bottom end of the chain. Doesn't look to hard.

No there is no master link for timing chains. you will need to remove the cams, tensioner, mag side cover, flywheel, and possibly some other misc parts in order to remove the chain. Do you have a service manual for your machine? check in there, give it an quick read through to get an idea of what all you will have to do.
