Can anyone tell me if the '84 380 SL came with the double timing chain? My memory (what's left)<br> is that they fixed the single timing chain problem after 1983. Hope I'm right. THANKS_____HARRY______ email [email protected]
FYI (Mercedes Benz information MBNA/MBC S 2467 000 03/'91) <br> <br> 'The V8s 380SL/SLC from 81 to 83 with engine numbers 116.96.. up to model year 1983 were fitted with simplex chain (186 links) and it must be replaced with the duplex chain together with all the sprokets in case of repair. The left-hand cylinder head must be removed for this purpose' <br>
