yes ,new zealand or especially Levington suffolk ,that link chain is a definite must ,otherwise a black eye might be the least of your worries ,
that current set up looks very poor ,i can help you get it right but trailer bits and pieces are not cheap so you need to be prepared for a few quid for bits , a silk purse from a sows ear is a statement that may be applicable ,mind you help and advice is free

45 doesn’t seem to bad consider the rubber is 7

Custom made options too I think you may be able to adjust current post but a slightly lower post might work better.
