No. Sorry, you're Wrong.
On these engines that uses Pushrods, which usually are known as OHV (Over Head Valve) engines, there is a "Direct Gear Connection" where is no Chain involved. (I know that some OHV pushrod engines used chains, but that is Not the case here)
Subaru built their legendary H4 1.8L "EA81" engine, which is a Boxer on same OHV system, and I've seen them surpassing ~ 900K miles so far, still running; but Subarus are the most High Mileage engines from Japan.
Further information on Pushrod OHV systems:

... someone, based on your info, needs to tell Rock Auto that they don't need to sell timing chains ...
... The "QamFree motor uses electro-hydraulic-pneumatic actuators to provide precise control over each valve for more power and a 12 to 17 percent improvement in fuel economy...
