One last thing, the chain skipped a notch during all this. The pic below is the cams when the O/T mark is aligned and the rotor is pointing exactly at the notch in the case. Do you think the left hand cam needs to come down a notch, or do you think the right hand cam needs to come up a notch?
The weird thing is the rotor should not point exactly at cylinder number 1 when the piston is exactly TDC. Remember the timing spec? What is it, a few degrees ATDC?

Of course if the notch Mercedes put in the distributor is supposed to line up with O/T on the balancer, then it is a different mark than where the rotor points to when the spark plug fires.

You sure are working fast though.
