They don't. Eventually they go through enough wear and tear to get a bit of play in them, enough to skew cam timing a couple degrees. They last a hell of a lot longer than belts do though, and I haven't heard of any breaking yet.

Nothing is maintenance-free my friend. Click the image to open in full size.

are timing chains a lot harder to change out than timing belts? belts are fairly easy, but chains sound a lot harder.

Behind an aluminum timing cover sealed in place with Hondabond for one thing. It would be significantly more time consuming to replace vs. a belt.

If you're really serious about changing the cam chain, you'd better be ready to pull the motor.

Man I took off my valve cover and I saw nothing BUT pulleys n spinning thingies. Was I supposed to turn off my motor first though? Oil splatter burns...

^^ Exactly, except things were spinning and flying and slinging all kinds of cool ****.
