500e timing chain/cams

ive been thinking about a timing chain in the next 3-4 months on my baby .
question? do the cams have to come out ? a mechanic told me that the book time is 13.5 hours and that removing the cams is a sure way not to be off a tooth in the timing
i can handle the hours stated but removing the cams??
is this normal?is it the better way? or is he tellin me stories?
