Should I Remove the Head?

The only reason to remove it is to change the tensioning rail. You can follow the story here: Camshaft Play OM602

I'll re-post my idea here. Weld a stud onto the end of the pivot pin, pull it out, remove old rail and install new, insert new pivot pin from dealer. No need to remove the head.

I really like this idea - but I did vote for head removal.

I'd remove the head for another reason (knowing what's happened so far)

I'm paranoid about fast worn metal from timing chains and cogs and could not sleep well at night knowing that there might be some swarf floating about inside...

...I'd remove the head and really clean everything...

...I know I'd be asking for trouble - but that's what I'd do.

My advice comes with the warning in the form of the two threads listed in my signature as prime examples of what usually happens when I take stuff to bits!
