M119 Timing chain question,Do the plastic

guides break on these like the M117. From what i read a small plastic part on the M117 breaks and goes under the chain. This gets caught under the cam gear lifting chain and bending the valves.
also on the M117 a very loose chain will wear through one valve cover.
Does the M119 share these problems. I get a little rattle on start up,and will check the chain stretch soon. Waiting for back to heal from fusion.
Worry that a small broken piece of plastic could cause so much grief.

Just wondering about M119, some people say these chains last forever.
