Belt or Chain?

     I am having a discussion with Gerard about whether we should use an
adjustable double row timing chain or convert to belt drive on the 1275
he is building for me.  Gerard says that the belt stays spot-on for
timing through it's life and a chain stretches after some 4000 miles and
timing jumps around a bit after that.  I am trying to justify the cost
of the belt kit ($200+) the the cost of a stainless steel double row
lightened, adjustable timing chain from APT.  I'd like to hear from
those of you that have had experience with both and which you would use
on your next engine rebuild.
