450SL camshaft

Well I decided that I had better try to lift the camshaft and take the number 1 cam bearing tower out. I backed off all the bolts and the camshaft was lifted by the valve springs just far enough for the tower to clear the alignment pins. On retrospect I probably could have left the tower on with the wee bit of plastic in there but anyway for what it's worth it is possible to do it without totally removing the cam.
