How to adjust front chain on 1998 Polaris magnum 425 4X4

How do I adjust the front chain on 1998 Polaris magnum 425 4X4.

The service manual says to loosen the eccentric bolt "B". I can't find or see this bolt. Does anyone know a way to get to it to loosen it? The center chain is no problem because the bolts "A" are assessable with the guard removed.

If you go here Browse build your quad and then look under the front drive section. The bolt numbered 15 should be the one to loosen for your front chain adjustment.

Thanks Buddy, I hope there is a hole in the skid plate to get a socket through.

Got it, worked great The picture in the owners manual and the service manual show an angled bolt with a nut on the bottom. That threw me off when looking for it. You would think they could at least show the bolts in the correct position and location.
Thanks for your help.
