Td5 timing chain

Hi,
Is anyone aware of any timing chain problems with the Td5? Does the chain need to be replaced after so many miles as, for example, the serpentine belt does?

Had mine out at 173000 miles fixing gasket trouble. Worn but still serviceable. Put it back in...
Thought it was recommended at 200,000 though. Ex scottish & southern 110 Td5 van (shed) with PTO driven winch (L-R special vehicles)
Before that, Disco 1, Freelander 1, 26105382 80" with a 1600cc (not much slower)
