1. Loosen the idler pullery bracket adjustment and pivot bolts. 2. Position a suitable belt tension gauge. 3. Install a 1/2 in. breaker bar in the hole in the idler pulley bracket. Apply tension to the belt using the breaker bar. 4. Set the tension on a new belt to 170 lbs or a used belt to 140lbs. While maintaining the tension, tighten the adjustment bolt to 30ft. lbs 5. Remove the belt tension gauge and the breaker bar. Start the engine and let it idle for 5 minutes. 6. Shut the engine off, then reinstall the belt tension gauge and breaker bar. Apply tension with the breaker bar and slowly loosen the adjustment bolt to allow belt tension to increase to the used belt specification, 140 ft. lbs. Tighten the adjustment bolt to 30 ft. lbs. 7. Tighten the pivot bolt to 50ft. lbs.

There is a small idler pulley that also serves as the ac belt tensioner. Loosen the 14mm nut on that pulley then right behind that pulley is a 14mm bolt.

There is a tensioner pully between the AC pump and the drive pully on the crank. You need to lossen the bolt, (not remove)in the center of the pully then turn the bolt in at the top of the pully mount to give enough slack to install another belt. Reverse the process to tighten the belt. If you can not reach in to the center bolt of the pully you will have to remove the inner fender to get to it.
