Have to agree with Benzmac. I am in the process of replacing the chain and rails on a 16V. My front cover and pan are off (due broken rails) and it is easy to observe how the chain could become wedged if tension (both with the tensioner and manually pulling the tail end of the chain simultaneously!) is not maintained. Trust me, you do not want to go through the NIGHTMARE or removing all the brackets and pumps to get the front cover off. All you full time M.B. mechanics have earned my respect. Give it an other go.
