Post W116 Engine help

I have a W116 (SE 350 - European). Starts fine but once it warms up, it misses occasionally. I've tried to adjust the idle speed, to some good effect for a while, but the miss always returns. I'm thinking I should start with the basics (rotor, Dist. Cap, spark plugs). Is there anything else I should look at on this car?
The timing chain was replaced a few years ago, and has basically no miles on it.
Thanks in advance for any help.
