Your ”long held belief” is based on an observation by Petrie who stated:

”The coffer cannot have been put into the Pyramid after the King's Chamber was finished, as it is nearly an inch wider than the beginning of the ascending passage.”

The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh, Chapter 22, Section 173.
