Final note before I get on with bolting the 12v bottom end together and sell the unused 24v bits - there wouldn't be any advantage swapping to the later cam tensioner on 12v / early 24v and in fact it might make it more likely to skip a cambelt tooth since the detensioners allow the engine to run a tighter cambelt on startup. But later cambelt tensioners are cheaper / easier to find so might be a good temporary swap whilst searching through hen's teeth for early tensioner parts.
Right, time to sell off all these 24v bits and get on with doing something useful
