Newbie 420 SEL

Hi all,

great forum, already got good info...used to own a 83 300SD (got totalled bout 4 yrs ago ) just aquired a 420 SEL with a boatload of miles (but it was cheap)...after my 300SD got totalled i was always looking for a replacement but they are hard to come by in this area...anyway the 420 SEL is showing about 14 degrees of chain stretch by looking at the cam/crank marks so i am going to tackle the chain guides/chain/tensioner...
