Timing tensioner

bought a timing belt kit with tensioner, but the tensioner doesn’t seem to have the markings to set the correct tension on it.
Do I need to get a new one?

Looks as though the tab at 12 o’clock and the cutout at 1 o’clock positions align when correctly tensioned.

update: I found this for you on the Alfa Workshop website. They do excellent ‘how to’ guides. Worth a look. The image attached is up the other way compared to yours.
