its running sweet....... it defintely pays to remove the tensioner and lock it up in your hand then and refit it and release it

very important to have the tubing around the allen key as large as the retainer housing as the cam sleeve you gotta push on, barely shows

just remove the power steering pump and bracket and pull the tensioner out, youll see what i mean :)
