I'm not working the Enterprise but worse than that a 16V. I got the name from the Mercedes book that I used to remove the timing chain cover. The Pulse generator is the black looking sensor about 1.5" sits on the timing chain cover about 2 o'clock if you look at the crank shaft pulley. I think its function is like an RPM sensor every time the harmonic balancer complete a revolution. But the other end of this thing is connected to a plug that looks to me like a diagnostic plug???
I'm going to try see if I can use some jack if not I just rent a hoist like you said. The manual from Mercedes is terrible it nevers mention to remove the oil pan and I thought the reason you guys had to remove the oil pan because you had to fish out the guide rail debris!!!
Thanks again Tinker.
