Unhappy PLEASE HELP!! In middle of timing chain R&R

Started job tonight. Replaced the 3 guides. Will roll in chain tommorow.
Can the tensioner guide be replaced w/o removing the head?
Have read every post about timing chain R&R and no one mentions this guide.
I pulled the allen plug where I thought the pivot pin should be.
I could'nt seem to feel anything inside that would be the pin.

Also, do I install the new tensioner before or after rolling in the new chain?

Thanks in advance for your help.
