Or you didn’t understood the mechanic or he isn’t a real mechanic.
The timing or cam chain never becomes too tight.
To check the valves clearance you need a set off valve gouges. Not only one “little thin sheet of metal”
A good mechanic don’t need a Spanish manual (I know because from the English services manuals I learn English)
And no one who charge only $10 can be a good mechanic instead he is making charities.
My two cents:
Go!!, find a real mechanic, and try to read as much you can about your bike from the User Manual, the Service Manual and a good recourse The Chain Gang
PS your chain still good for the next 50K miles maybe…If a monkey whit spanners don’t play there….
