you can easily reset the hydraulic tensioner.

clamp the tensioner in a vise with the 10mm bolt facing up. Carefully unscrew the 10mm bolt. It is filled with a special fluid. Do not spill out. Use a small flat head screw driver, and insert into the hole. There is a screw inside. You will turn it clockwise, and the tensioner will retract. You will need a special bracket to hold the retracted tensioner. Re-install the 10mm bolt and make sure it does not leak.

Bolt the tensioner back to the engine block, and re-use.
