NOOOOO! You must take the center bolt and spring out, then release the pawl on the tensioner so it compresses to minimum length, THEN install it and finally put in the spring and center bolt. It will now auto tension. What you did (installing fully extended) is sure to cause noise and damage. Fix it NOW! This has been known to actually break the cam in half!
Then run it a bit. Remove the center bolt and spring, then remove the tensioner and see how far out it is... if not near the end of travel chain is ok. If end, chain needs replacement.
Then, follow the top paragraph instructions to re-install the tensioner (after everything else has been installed.)
