65 Oly broken drive chain

I took the 65 for it's maiden run today and got almost all the way around the yard when the chain broke. Were these a 1 piece chain or did it brake at a master link? If they are a one piece chain, what other models used the same chain?
Thanks in advance.

I used a set of chain and sprockets from a 70 12/3 and it's back together now. I'll go a little easier on the throttle with all that mighty Rotax power.

No, someone had already did that, I replaced them with 8/32 SS bolts.
