timing chain cover gasket,plus?

Re: 300E 2.6 w/101,000 miles
I will need to replace the Timing Chain Cover Gasket and Valve Cover Gasket. Is there anything else I should include in this service that would save labor later?

Are you changing the lower timing chain cover gasket or only the seal between the upper and lower timing chain covers? If you're only changing the seal, you'll need a cam seal as well. If you're pulling the lower cover, consider new guides for the timing chain.

Lots of info in the archives around fixing oil leaks at the front end of the M103.
