    can you move the chain at all?? if it has a little slack in it, it looks like you could ditch the tensioner.

    if that does not work you can run the tensonier in the push up mode to get more chain wrapped around the rear cog.

    Looks Ok, but I would still run it in the push up mode.

    Agreed. That'll be the best solution, if you even need the tensioner at all.
