I have struggled with this a time or two on the 617 engines. The way I do it is to back out the plug behind the spring until it is down to the last 4-5 threads then start the tensioner mounting bolts. I use a socket on the plug to PUSH hard until I can get the mounting bolts started then tighten everything down. You can do it this way but it will wear you out.
