If the bike has gears it does not have a master link, that is for single speed bikes only.

You will need an 8spd chain for your bike (1/2" x 3/32), these will fit any 6,7 or 8 spd bike. This requires a special tool to install ($8-$25), I would recommend taking into a bike shop and have them do it if you have no experience with this type of chain.

Side note: if you do own the tool, you can repair a broken chain for a temporary fix in the future, so may be worth buying. Check around, many bike shops offer basic repair classes and cover this.

I can't figure out how the chain and derailleur go on my huffy tundra 18 speed bicycle.


Yours is an issue best addressed in person, as we can't see the bike, we don't even know whether you mean how they work or how they are installed, nor do we know what the original problem is. Go to a bike shop or bike co-op for assistance, or find a knowledgeable friend.

How to repair a broken chain on multi speed bicycle


to fix a broken chain you need a chain breaker tool to push the pins out of the links. Park makes a great one (Park CT-5, probably get it off of Amazon) for about $15. You can use the tool to remove the broken link(s), once removed, line up the good ends with the tool and push the pin back through. The link will be stiff, so you need to flex the chain laterally with your hands to loosen it up where you joined it together. DO NOT use a "master link" to join the chain together from a "single speed" bike, these will get jammed in the derailleur and cause more damage, and they are usually to thick for a multi-speed bike. Check out a repair manual or YouTube for details.

Loose chain


Many believe that removing a link will fix chain slack, this will not work if the chain has stretched over time. Take a 12" ruler and align one end with a pin and see if another pin aligns at 12". Any pin that extends beyond 12 1/8" indicates that the chain is too far gone and requires replacing.

Chain size


If it was me, I'd measure the chain already on this bike or go to Walmart with a tape measure and measure one there. I assume you don't have any of the paper work that came with the bike originally? What do you intend to do, Are you going to replace the chain ? You can get a kit to replace a broken chain / link, if you need to. You just punch out the rivet on one side with the tool in the kit, then pop in the connector and attach the locking clip . Remember to feed the chain through the frame at the back., before you do this.

My grandsons bike chain broke. Went to the store to buy a new chain. On the back of the package it said I needed a chain rivet extractor and of course, the store didn't carry that tool. How can I fix...


You should go to a bike shop, they can sell you a master link, and keep your own chain. Is your grandson's bike a 1 speed or a multi speed bike, if it is multi then you need a chain tool. Bike shops can do the job cheaper than you can buy the tool and it will be done right. Take the chain back to the store that didn't carry the tool.

We have an 18" boys huffy bike and the chain keeps falling off. How can I repair.


If a single speed bike loosen the rear wheel and pull it back away from the pedals to get the chain tighter

If it has multi gears the arm hanging down has a ser screw that will need to be adjusted to align the chain to stop at the last gear

Making the bike from a 18-speed to a 1 speed bike


single speed bikes have a single ratchet or fixed sprocket with no offset of the spokes, so you would probable need another rear wheel.
Another derailleur is probably simpler, try ebay

How to put a chain on?


Your question is not entirely clear. If you are trying to replace your existing chain with a new one, then you will need a special tool (chain breaker) to remove it. Here is a link to a video on how to do it.

You may also want to consider getting a quick release chain link for the future to make the job easier.

If you done have access to a chain breaker, then I suggest you take the bike to a bike store. Replacing a chain is cheap and can be done fast.
