Apparently, I'm a 'Newbie'

Greetings to one'n'all.

After what seems to be a century or so driving, I've bought myself a Merc. It's a 1997 Vito 108D with a 2.3 diesel engine. The last diesel I worked on was big, camo'd & had a gun on the top.

Can I assume that my new toy has a timing chain and not a cambelt? And has it got self adjusting tappets? My last diesel never had either!
