Smile Hello from Minneapolis and a Question Too

An MB fan and weekend mechanic for years, I am currently "degreasing" a 120 engine (gaskets and seals) from my '95 S-600 Coupe. My wife drives a GLK-350 and my daily driver is an E-550. I got started 20+ years ago with a 300E from 1987 and fell in love with the brand. Can you tell?

My question is about cam timing on the 120 engine. I know to watch out for valve clearances and all, but how is the intake timing set, given its hydraulic advance mechanism? Can someone point me to the best forum for this?

The BenzWorld forums look great and I look forward to participating for a long time to come. Jim...
