Timing chain rail pin

1997 C280 head gasket replacement complete except the timing chain rain pin will not go all the way in its hole. Is there a possibility a pressure lock prevents it from seating?

Most likely the pin is not lined up with hole in block. wiggle chain and rail while tapping on pin

Use emery cloth to clean end smooth out any nicks and insert

You can also use a very soft, mini dummy hammer to tap it in. Be ultra careful though.
