Help with Timing Chain

Hi I just took every thing apart on my 190 2.6 because the timing chain jumped, and Im trying to find how to set the timing again. I cant figure out where to line up the crank and the cam sprocket. Does any one know. Thanks

RE: Help with Timing Chain

Crankshaft timing should be on top dead center (OT) while the camshaft marling should align with the top marking in the cylinder head, refer to the picture included

For the crankshaft how do I find the top dead center. Do I have to have the timing cover on to find out.

the left side of the crankshaft sensor bracket will be basis or the pointer for the "OT" or top dead center.

So sorry for the late reply

RE: Help with Timing Chain

No need to remove the timing case cover you can see this directly in the pulley. on a W201 2.6 it might be a little difficult to see, since space is too small in that area.But its possible to check this.

if you look in the lower left of the picture the OT mark is in the vibration damper itself all you have to do is just turn the damper and you will later see this mark, then align it with the crank position sensor bracket.
