Default Too much slop?

This was my timing chain last summer. Does that look like too much slop? It didn't have any play, but at 134xxx miles, I feel it'* about due a change.

that doesnt look too bad at all, how much was the slop when you went from side to side with your finger? that tensioner acts simiar to an automatic belt tensioner......

134000 miles...........lol its due for a change? i have 193000 on my bonne with origonal timing chain did you or do you have reason to change it, (engine running rough, or other problem?)

It does run a little rough. It got better when I put the MAF screen back in, but it'* still not butter smooth like I want it to be.

I tearing my engine down soon anyway to swap the heads.
