M112/M113 timing chain replacement

Does anyone know the replacement interval for the timing chain on the 3.2/4.3 M112/M113 motors?

The tensioner, guides and chains on the old M116/M117 V8s, which also had the double-row chain, needed replacement every 100K miles or so. Does this carry over to the newer V engines?

The 112/113 Engines have a spec for a stretched chain...No replacement data.
(IF) the 112/113 engines are like the 103/104s They will last a long long time..as I Have never replace a chain in a 103/104

The old style engines ..V8s had a single row chain..that was updated to a Double row chain...

Its not the chain that goes bad...either the chain tensioner or a broken chain rail
When they go it jumps time and bends valves

Timing Chain Question

I have a '98 E320 (112,000 miles) and a '99 E320 Wagon (150,000 miles). Both get synthetic oil, changed at 3000-5000 miles (since I've owned them anyway). I know the timing chains are known for long wear, but I'd really like to check stretch on them from time to time, but I don't know what the process is to do this check. I know this has probably been covered 100s of times so I apologize for the repetition, but I haven't had any luck finding the actual "how to" instructions in any searches.

Thanks a lot....The help is much appreciated.

Did you experienced any rattling?
What was the reason for the change?

Sorry for reviving an old thread, did not manage to find the answer by following Moutine posts.

Sorry. Yes it was rattling at idle. Specially when I gave a small nod to gas pedal. New chain and tensioner solved everythin.

I remember at the same summer I changed the chain to friends CLK430. 220k km driven. Chain was even more stretched. Almost 10mm or something.

Now I'm driveing 2005 CLK55 with 161k km on the clock and no rattling. Atleast not yet.
