First order of things would be to get to the mercedes EPC. You need to make sure the chain setup is the same as the us model 500SEC or SEL. I'm pretty sure it is. Then go to parts sites to find your part as you were ordering for a U.S. Model Mercedes. 81-85 m117 500sec. Its possible the 560SL is the same as well. Labor is a lot. I would count on at least 10hrs from an experienced mechanic. There are a few replace while your there items like the water pump as well.

Pelican Parts, the site sponsor, can supply all the parts and tools you need. ‘Labour’ sounds like you might be outside the US. I don’t know if shipping to where you are is practical. There is no kit as such but they can advise what parts you’ll need.

Few shops will appreciate that you bring your own parts. Get estimates for parts and labor/labour together then negotiate bringing your own parts.

What I have done in the past to obtain information from the Dealer. Go in to the dealer parts counter. Inquire about purchasing engine parts in the timing chain system with your VIN in hand. They should have a diagram with all of the parts that go with your system on the car. A print out with the diagram is usually available from them for free. be sure to ask for the parts list with the part numbers on it. Tell the counter that you need to have that list and diagram in order for your mechanic to find the correct parts to buy from them. You should walk out the door with a diagram and corresponding part list of your timing system. Bring this and upload here and or cross check the parts listed here in the parts catalog with the 500sec/sel. You may have to search for later years. eg 1985. If no match is found then google each part number separately. One thing I recommend buying at least, is the chain tensioner and rails from the Dealer. Make sure you get the IWIS chain not from dealer, as you will save on that right here . IWIS is the original maker for MB.
