Splitting a Campag chain - ie where?

Hello all.

I need to take off the chain from my Ribble Gran Fondo to fit a longer one for my girly Fred Whitton cassette!

For some reason, it is a Campag Record chain (the rest of the groupset being Centaur). Now my Centaur chains have a mark on the link where they are joined. I can't find any mark on the Record chain at all to indicate where the join was made. So, can I split it anywhere (I thought you had to avoid the original joined link) or is there something I'm missing that I should look for in the pin itself?

Thanks in anticipation......Rolf

    You're going to lower your gearing for that ?

    I wouldn't bother.

    Then my low gear is 22-30.

    Ha!
