JCantor - I will do the cam oiler (already ordered the kit). Now that you mention the valve stem seals, I will consider those too.

Morris - your method sounds kind of like what I have read about. The difference is I will be doing the right side (passenger side), which is the way the manual describes it. They also have the rolling in rechnique. Since I have to do it by myself (no assistance), I will remove the rockers to smooth the way on that cam (this is the way Benz recommends it). Of course the plugs get pulled. I will then use a generous amount of wire ties for keep the chain on the teeth during the roll, i.e. tie - roll - clip - tie - roll - clip and so on.
