380SE 116.xxx engine chain tensioner question.

This engine has only run for a few minutes in the last several years. I started it last week with a new fuel distributor. I ran it such a short time due to fear of chain rails breaking because of their age.

Today when I took the left valve cover off to change the chain guides in that head I found the chain very loose. Is this normal? Does this indicate its time for a new tensioner? Please elaborate.
