I went to the adjustable belt last year.
I'll never go back to a chain again!
Much quieter (for what that's worth on a Sprite)
I zeroed in my cam at 4* advance and the car moves out.
Just keep a spare belt in the tool kit and you will have no worries.
Changing the belt is a 5 minute job once you pull the radiator.
The chains loosen up after about 500 miles but they are good for 80,000
If you are building a better then stock engine, go for the belt drive.
