Rockers and/or shafts?

I've seen worn subrockers - but never their shafts.
My lower rocker arms (followers?) ID are all about .5505 ( limit .553) but the shafts are both .5495 (limit .551). Factory service manual says clearance limit is .0031 which seems like a lot.

That's only a 10 thou {.0010} clearance and seems normal.
I'm looking for an issue in the valve train because I've broken several chain tension bars after only a few hundred miles each. I thought that because the shafts are worn past limit even though it's within clearance maybe that's why. Everything else I've checked so far seems fine
