The failure is a combination of excessive side load...belt too tight...and either a poor quality of oil or filthy oil for extended periods...

The sump bushing gets worn..
The crank/cam gears no longer mesh properly...clicking noise...
A few months later ...crank gear cracks loose from the crankshaft..
Engine stops....lots of phone calls.....
