1983 911SC Repair Priorities: Clutch/Transmission vs. Chain Tensioners


Vehicle Information: Model: 911SC; Year: 1983; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 53,432;

I have an 1983 911SC that I'm periodically having trouble downshiftinginto third gear. The car still has the original clutch which has neverhad any adjustments to the best of my knowledge. Do you recommendfocusing on the third gear synchro or the clutch or both for purposes ofservice?Also, if you had a choice of living with this problem or installingupdated tensioners to accommodate a budget, which would you choose? Ihave never had any problems with the motor, but am thinking about thetensioner issue given that the car is almost 20 years old.
