This engine has a ratcheting tensioner which serves to do away with many timing chain problems.

If the oil is religiously changed hot and often, you will probably NEVER experience a timing chain failure. If the oil is left in the engine very long, particulate matter is circulated which will wear the chain. If the oil and crankcase are kept squeeky clean, the wear problem virtually goes away.

Good luck,
