Is the guy a certified mechanic? If so I would go by what he says.

If the oil pump quit the lack of oil pressure would do all kinds of damage to the engine.

Mr2's don't have timing chains they run belts MKI 1985-1989 (4age) engine and MKII 1991 -1995 (5sfe) (3stge turbo) engine. The these engines all use a rotor impeller type oil pump very reliable. After disassembly its simple to determine if the pump caused an issue with the timing belt.
