Does anyone have any experience with cutting part of the new upper rail away to prevent its later breakage? I've seen others on a listserv talk about cutting away part of the upper rail to prevent it from breaking off.

Just curious, as I had my 87 420SEL's chain, rails, and tensioner changed within 3 hours of purchase (had to drive her to my home mechanic)...so, I am huge advocate of this maintenance. And, yes, at 115k miles, my upper chain rails were brown and brittle.
