My understanding from all I have read is that it is not just the chain you worry about. Another issue on the 560 engine seems to be that the guides become brittle and pieces will break off and jam the chain. When that happens, you are looking at several thousand dollars in repairs. Do a search in the tech section since I think this was covered fairly recently. My new '88 SL had a new chain before 100k but from the invoice (P.O. had the work done), they did NOT replace the guides, so it looks like I get to do them this spring.
