Cam chain tensioner question

I bought a used engine a while ago with a fresh top end and head studs and I'm now working on it and making some discoveries. I think the engine is a '79 and this was before hydraulically pressurized tensioners were added to the engines. The tensioners seem to have some sort of safety collars on them to prevent them from collapsing.

Are these considered safe to run or should I convert them over to pressure fed?
