You have the bonus of it being Japanese metal. Provided you do nothing silly like clog dance clutchless on max revs up and down the box or stick a valve through the piston, it will sit there tick tocking away for years.

One interesting thing, there's a little spring that goes with the pin and bush to locate the cam and gear. I don't know long term, but short term, it plays a real mean samba rhythm as the pin and the bush jiggle about. But it's not immediately harmless, just rattly.
