Can you change the timing tensioner without redoing the timing belt?

Hello again. So recently 300miles ago I changed timing belt all associated pulleys and water pump. I used the gates kit everything is fine but i keep stumbling on threads here, Facebook ect saying the gates tensioner is not rated at the right lbs of pressure (I've also seen a similar amount of threads saying the gates kit is fine ect). So I am wondering can I replace just the tensioner with an oem Ford one without redoing the entire process!? I saw a thread asking a similar question however that devolved into a pissing match over who knows more lol. Thank u all for your time. Th

I also forgot to mention that the gates tensioner (everything is timed correctly btw no cel) bar has moved. Thx again
