1981 Chain Tensioners


Vehicle Information: Model: 911; Year: 1981; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 104,500;

I was told the following about a car I am thinking of purchasing. Could someone kindly confirm if this would be an acceptable practice? And if chain tensioner conversion was needed, what would I be looking to spend on that? Thanks.Steve"Tensioners certainly could be done but I have not had any issues. I was told the 78-80 3.0 liter had to be replaced and that the 81-83 3.0 liter has a failsafe type tensioner so it is fine to run them until they actually fail."
