Question about 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300
If it has not broken or jumped timing you simply remove the valve cover and timing chain tennsioner. Then cut a link out of the old chain on top of the cam gear, then you attach the new chain with the supplied master link and slowly rotate the engine until the old chain has run out and the new chain is in it's place. It's best to have a helper to rotate so you can hold the chain against the cam gear. Once this is done recheck the can timing and do not let the chain slip or you will have to pull the injection pump and retime it. Even if you do it's easier than removing the front cover! Good luck!
