Make sure the timing marks align first, on the crank damper and the camshaft to the 1st bearing. Then check the chain guides and then the tensioner. Chain stretch is usually not a problem with these engines because they are much shorter than the V-8's.

I posted a few pics when I did a valve job on my M103'd 300SE.
