Don't bother with the cheap chain rivet tools. The rivet pins on my chain were far harder than the rivet tool. Ended up using a block of steel as an anvil and an engineers hammer.
The sprocket, I used a 36mm? socket and a rattle gun. Have done it with a socket and a long handle ratchet using the back brake to stop the sprocket turning (before removing the chain) but it's a bit fiddly unless you have an assistant. It can also be hard to undo a tight sprocket nut this way as the cush drive absorbs the movement as you try to break the nut free.
I don't like the idea on putting it in gear to lock the sprocket shaft but maybe that's just me.
