on the tensioner there is a square hole for a ratchet or use a wrench on the nut

The 2001 actually doesn't have the sqare hole. That's on the earlier trucks. Use a 15mm socket on a long breaker bar. There is a bolt head at the center of the tensioner pulley (just to the left of the middle of the engine if you're looking at it). Turn the handle toward the passenger side, and this will release the tension on the belt. Make sure you have a diagram to tell you how the belt is routed, so that you can put it back on in the right manner. Oh, and the F150's come with a 4.2L V6, not a 4.3L. Just FYI. Good luck!
