If I remember correctly you first have to take off the wheel and then take off a cover plate and then you will be able to see the chain and with that you might be able to loosen the tightener enough to get the chain over the top sprocket and then with that you will have enough movement to be able to drop the chain off the bottom sprocket and out over the hub in the wheel and then put the wheel back on and those are carriage bolts for lug bolts.

A bit more. To jack it up to take a wheel off take along 2 of the old style car bumper jacks or a pair of handyman jacks that you can raise up to around 3 foot, may need some blocks to do it. Then when you get ready to pull a wheel first hook it up to the tow vehical so it cannot move and fall off the jacks. then put one of the jacks under the frame on the front and the other under the frame on the back and lift equally, not doing that will twist the frame. But first before you lift it break loose the lug nuts as if you raise first there is nothing to turn against to loosen them. Been 40 years since I had to work on that. Had the chain break while in the field and it imidiately broke the toung with side thrust. We thought it was the toung just let go and repaired that to start planting again "cannot remember if wheat or soybeans" and as soon as tried pulling found something else was wrong and then found that chain, a roller chain, think an extended pitch 50 was busted. And it is an IHC model MF being the fertilizer making the F in the model with the non fertilize model being the M. Remember that come-a-long to control the side sway and plenty of grease for the wheel bushings as bo roller bearings or grease seals.
