German term or phrase: Kettenebene
Vormontage von Nockenwellenverstellern in Flügelbauweise mit Kettenantrieb:
1. Manuelle Zuführung des Frontdeckels ...
2. Manuelle Zuführung des Stators, dessen Zentrierung und eindeutige Ausrichtung (Fase am Stator liegt "oben" bzw. Kettenebene liegt oben"; Positionierungshilfe am Stator)

This involves the positioning of the stator in pre-assembly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

English translation:side with the chain
Explanation:
My reading of this is different. Point 2 is about, as you said, positioning the stator. The "eindeutige Ausrichtung" means, I think, chosing a specific orientation, whereby there are 2 possibilities, either the chamfer (Fase) or the chain side is placed up. The geometry is just like a die, whereby e.g. the 6 or the 1 could be placed up if you laid it on a table. You can say the chain plane, like rain in Spain, but it is not a question of putting something on top, it is a question of orienting the stator so that one or the other side is up. BW, Nancy

on the level of the chain...


Explanation:
sounds more comfortable to me, although it destroys the criminal precision of the German. If you have described it as "chain-driven", anyway, this would be understandable.

DO take some rest breaks, sometimes it helps to see things with more perspective. At any rate, this is what my translation bosses used to tell me whenever I felt I was beginning to suffer idioglossia.

chain side


Explanation:
Ich würde das so verstehen dass der Stator zwei Seiten hat, die Fase und eine andere, an der die Kette befestigt wird/entlangläuft (Kettenebene)
