I just replaced my KMC 10sc chain with their new x10.3 chain. I could not connect the master link and ended up using a Wipperman link. On my old KMC chain the master link was easy to install. :crap:

Do you mean the x10.93 by any chance? I haven't heard of the x10.3 (talking 10 speed here). If so, try this with the KMC link: put it on and slide the link in place so it is above the chainstay. You don't need to try to slide the pins all the way into the end of the slot (yet). Then, give the pedal a light stomp (in the going forward direction), while sitting on the bike. This should snap the pins into the end of the slot - this is hard to do by hand! Getting it off is tough - the Park tool for this makes it easier.
