I have a 1990 2.6 190e, I have had the car for just over a year and it is in great shape.
I am currently replacing the valve cover gasket and timing cover gasket due to an oil leak.
Since I have the upper timing cover off can anyone tell me how to inspect the timing chain to see if it needs to be replaced.
The car has 180,000 miles and I am the third owner.(my dad purchased the car used in 1992)
Any advise or information would be great.

I am new to these engines but it seems to me that you should be able to measure the amount that the tensioner is extended to get an idea of chain streach. I do not have a manual on this engine, can anyone let me know if this measurement can be done and what is the length of the tensioner supposed to be?
