tighten with fingers until it stops
back up 1/4 turn, smash down the jam nut.
Consider this before your tensioners pump up with oil pressure the chain is SLACK
slack in the chain has your engine running out of time, chain is slapping around hard on the nylon guides....... tick tick tick tick on cold starts...........
With manual tensioner they are never allowed to go slack
Or install a pre-oiler to pump up the hydraulic tensioners before starting the engine. Granted this will cost more than installing manual tensioners, but a pre-oiler provides other benefits.
