- Timing Chain w/ master link

- Timing Cover Expansion Plug (30mm)
- Vacuum Pump Seal
- 3 Fuel Injector Return line O-Rings

Only one valve cover must be removed to replace the chain, therefore this kit includes valve cover parts, including new injector seals and hold down bolts, for only one side.
The valve cover gasket is RTV-type sealant, available below.
Timing Chain Option
The factory, OEM timing chain is manufacured by IWIS. We stock IWIS chains directly from IWIS in IWIS boxes. We also stock OEM Mercedes Chains and those are available as an upcharge. The chains themselves are identical, however, so unless you have a requirement for OEM packaging, we recommend staying with the IWIS chain.
