I believe they are chains, and long convoluted ones at that.

My Subaru (listed below) had a gear-driven camshaft. So, yes, there are not two but three possible answers, depending on year and model.

1981 Mazda GLC (323) retired at 606K
1972 Subaru DL retired at 190K

Subaru belts were great and only needed changes every 105,000 miles. However; the dealers overcharged greatly and turned the owners away. I think the roller chain models used one chain for each bank of cylinders. Ed

My 2015 Forester is a chain. Unfortunately it's not like your father's chain. Like the chain that was in my 289 Mustang.
