No you can not. If belt is loose, are won't fit then you have the wrong belt.

The belt tensioner is spring loaded and that is what tightens the belt.

How do you put a fan belt on a 1992 Chevy silverado?

a 92 Silverado 350 uses a single serpentine belt that is tensioned by a spring loaded idler pully. When facing the engine from the front of the vehicle, the tensioner is near the top of the engine slightly left of center. Using a breaker-bar and socket, remove tension from the idler pully and simultaneously slide the serpentine belt off one of the other pulleys. I usually pick the alternator pully since it's so close. Note the path of the old belt and make certain that the new belt is installed along the identical path. Put the belt on all pullies, including the idler pully and hold it with slight tension near the alternator pully, then turn the idler pully again and slide the belt over the alternator and release pressure from the idler pully. Visually inspect the path of the entire belt to make certain that it is properly installed before starting the engine. Don't let anyone stand to the side of the engine when starting it for the first time, since a mis-installed pully can be ripped apart quickly and relatively large pieces of reinforced rubber can really hurt when they hit you.
