M104 straight 6,double roller chain lubricated.The only thing you need to do is if the engine starts leaking oil which the m104 is prone to do at 100k is ignore it and add oil or repair it at which time the head comes off and you check chain stretch.
Keep fresh conventional oil in it and maintain it properly.Learn to diy
