120K miles is probably enough for a tensioner damper, but I think you can get a
good idea of its condition just by holding it in your hand and wiggling the
shock plunger in and out. If you feel slop, or if the action is not smooth or
lacks damping then replace it.
I noticed on mine that the shaft did have slop/play in it. The cause (determined
by disection) was that the shock rod was coming loose where it attached to the
piston. I believe at least one lister has had this unit fail - as in come apart.
This of course will lead to lots of bent valves.

On the plus side, I am pretty sure you can change the damper simply by removing
the right timing cover. It may be tricky to get it adjusted correctly but I am
pretty sure I did it once. If that vis true, you can do the repair any time you
want without special tools.
