I would have had a similar issues with the clearance on duplex cam chains fitting the split link in from the front, that's why I choose to pull the sprockets. I suspect that r2adv will have a little more clearance once the centre plates fitted in his link but not much.

I've a spare camchain sitting here. 0.966 across the split link and the rollers are split

I was told they were stamping marks but looking close they may well be splits from a formed roller. A older masterlink chain I have shows neither. I haven't heard of failures so must be good?
