Default another chain question

I've got my #41 chain broken into a near perfect length. However, one end is an outside link and the other is an inside link.

I would like to use a master link to connect, can I just force the master link pin through the outside link holes? The master link fits fine through the inside link of course. I worry it will put a kink in the chain as well as not be strong enough.

They make what's called a half link.

Why can't you bust one more pin and make it fit right?

then it would be too short. I'll just have to go with a bit too long and move my engine back to tighten things up.
