4-cylinder Ranger timing belt tensioner spring replacement

After replacing the head gasket and everything above it, I have come to the final steps in re-assembly before I light the fires. However, I spent an hour yesterday trying to get the timing belt tensioner spring
back on without breaking my knuckles. I ended up with a lot of bruises and cuts, and no tensioned timing belt.
Is there a special tool I can rent/buy that provides tension to this small torsion spring? Does anyone have any advice for reinstalling the tensioner spring?
