Thanks for catching my omission Gilly. It's been nagging me all evening, I knew I forgot something but couldn't put my finger on it. Most definitely, new tensioner too.
I only mentioned a broken cam because every thrown chain I've seen on a V-8 has destroyed the left cam or cam towers, so I expect a cam will be in order too. I could be wrong though.
