looking for write-up on OM617 timing chain R&R

Hi to all,
I'm looking for a write-up on a DIY timing chain R&R. I know the chain can fail on these engines, and I'm wanting to swap mine out ASAP.

Also, if you have a p/n on a timing chain kit (sprockets, guide, tensioner, chain, etc)- I'd like to buy the whole kit vs. having to piece part everything that I need to get the job done.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Adam; I went down to Burleson last night! You're not too far away from me. I'm sure this write up will help a lot. I'm looking forward to knocking it out.

Does anyone have a kit part number that consists of every part needed to do the job?

There is no parts Kit.
And, there is only sort of a consensus on the minimum Parts to replace.

Does "knocking it out" mean you already have the Chain Crimping Tool in hand?

IWIS Chains are clearly better quality than the other makes. There is a nice thread somewhere showing Pics comparing a Japanese (Beck Arnley?) Chain with an IWIS.
