I've come across situations like that and about the only thing I could think of was to pull spark plug #1, put a small rod or long screwdriver down the cylinder and turn the crankshaft pully SLOWLY AND BY HAND while I watched the rod move up or down. Once the rod got to the top and started to move back down I turned the pully backward and then carefully positioned the pully to the point where the rod was at it's highest point. I then did something to the mark on the pully so that I would know which was the indicator for #1, either a chalk mark or a little extra filing on the pully.

To adjust tension you need to loosen the bolt which holds the pulley and then adjust the bolt which is directly above the pulley. Once you have proper tension tighten the pulley bolt.
