Talking Resurrecting 96 S420

Hello. I just purchased my first Mercedes. I have always wanted one and I recently came across a 96 S420 that needs some tlc. I was told that it broke the timing chain. I have done a similar repair on interference motors before so I decided to restore this beautiful car. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
