I have it around the front and both gear boxes. I can't seem to find enough room to get it around the tensioner.

There is a spring attached to the idler arm that your tensioner pulley is bolt to. Make a note of where this spring attaches on both ends. You can use a marker, or a paint pen. After you have made notes of where your spring attaches, remove your spring. This will give your tensioner pulley, freedom of movement. Now, you can get your belt onto your tensioner pulley.

After you have gotten your belt on your engine pulley, both gear box pulleys, and your tensioner pulley, you can re-attach your spring. Your spring will be difficult to stretch, in order to attach the opposite end. You can use a piece of rope to pull your spring, in order to attach it. Just loop your rope over the hook on your spring, then pull it, to attach it.
