Checking chain stretch M103

I have the valve cover off so...

I am using the procdure in the manual for checking camshaft basic position.


-Turn crank to 0 position (0 T) relative indicator.

-Mark (or pin in my case [early model]) must line up with the casting on first rocker bearing bracket

-Arrow oval hole must line up with pin


Am I missing something or is this the correct way to check for stretch?

Chain stretch on an M103 is not something you have to worry about.

The proper procedure would be to align the marks on the camshaft and check the crank for the offset.

Yep its pretty much right on the money... the plastic is looking good as well... is there a test for the tensioner?

Relax and keep on changing the oil.

Chain and tesioner will run a very long time.
