My bet is he has the "old style" timing chain...

The next time you adjust your valves just look at the threads on your timing chain tensioner... I can't remember the exact amount of acceptable threads, but I think it's between 8 and 12 thread showing it's time to change chains.

Somebody will chime in with the correct number I'm sure.
