Nothing wrong with using two wrenches. I think the chain was used because the NUT was so far away from the bolt.

Think whatever you want to. They hauled me to a hospital when I worked in the phosphate mines machine shop because a pump impeller would not break loose. One of the helpers on the other side of the shop set a 2,000 pound pump barrel down on the handle of a very large (like 4 foot handle) chain wrench, then hit the handle with a sledge hammer. The chain wrench broke and a side link flew across the shop and broke my jaw.

Didn't remember even getting hit, just remember I was rebuilding a Durco pump one minute, the next minute I was on my knees on the floor, bleeding from my face.

It explains why I keep a beard most of the time. The beard is better than shaving over scars.
