SOURCE: valve timing check
Chain drive. Unless the engine's been apart, why would the cam/valve timing change?
Valve clearances are another matter, and unless you want to remove the camshafts, get a mechanic who has the proper Suzuki tool to do them for you. You can measure the clearances, but the shims are between the cam lobe and the valve bucket, and the special tool holds the bucket down whilst changing to a thicker or thinner shim.

SOURCE: engine cuts out after reasonable
These things are hard to diagnose, so I will recommend something to try. My first guess is that your fuel pump is cutting off due to a weak relay. The way to find out is to swap the fuel pump relay with another similar relay, such as the horn relay. The relays are usually found in the relay box under the hood. Another thing you can do to verify that this is a fuel issue is to stop and shut off the car the next time this happens. Open the hood and pull out the fuel pump relay. Then try to start the car like you usually do. If the car starts as usual, the problem is not with the fuel pump or relay. Put the relay back in. If the car didn't start but does after the relay has been in (and assuming the relay is now a good one), the pump is acting up.
If this doesn't resolve your problem, next I would consider electrical issues. You can reply back to me at that point, but I hope this does it for you. :o)
