I have several pins from my old 7spd MTB chains (shimano HG). These are the kind that are double long. The first half gets the pin in place and alligns the chain and you break it off after you drive the it home. Will these pins work on my 8-spd road chain?

I am planning a solo century on Wed (my first) and I just decided to add a chain tool and a pin to my tool bag. I have never broken a chain on the road, but I would hate to do it on this ride way out in the boonies. Does anybody else bother to carry a chain tool?
