I had the valve covers off to check the valves on my 1975 450sl and I go to check the marks on the camshafts - and they are off by one tooth I am estimating. The car have had the timing chain and tensioner replaced a couple of years back so all of that should be fine. The question is - what is the best way of rectifying this? Short of redoing the timing chain? I was thinking of getting the chain joint over the left bank opening it at turning the camshaft before putting in a new chain joint? Assuming the slippage would happen on the left bank and this is an old issue before the chain replacement.
