Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I've tried that but, the belt seems really tight and it seems like the belt won't stretch that much. Also it there is a bolt very near the top of the bottom idler pulley that it looks like the belt might rub against. Any suggestions on the best way to install the belt.
Expert:  brownjeff replied 5 years ago.

Are you loosening the tensioner? Again I will attach both as I don't know which one you have?
