I am having the timing chain on an 1984 190E 2.3 replaced. A friend of mine is doing the job, and he wants to just replace the chain links. I was wondering if it is okay to do this, or would it be BETTER to just get a new chain all together? I was thinking get a new chain because maybe there will be another weak spot in the old chain and it will break again. I thought that if he put a NEW chain on it, it woudn't do this.
Please let me know what you think.
