Welcome to the real world.

The V12 timing chain arrangement is shown in the attached drawing from my parts book.

It is NOT a task for the feint hearted. LOTS, and LOTS of bits need removing, and some more just for access, then dealing with #29 (the plastic tensioner), which by the sounds of your post is already broken, is fun, NOT.

I have done this job in situ twice, not a pleasant job. I will not do that again, maybe too old, but there are just so many things that can go wrong.
