Go to ferraridatabase.com and download TR and 512 TR owners manuals and workshop manuals. Should give you some idea of how things work. All Ferraris are interference designs. If a chain or cambelt goes, so do the valves of the affected cylinders.
It is much cheaper to pull the engine every five years and change the belts, adjust the valves, rebuild the water pump, etc than engineering a chain drive for a mid-engine flat 12 that fits and is durable.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
