1987 P30 serpentine belt tensioning point
So I just put in a new alternator, got the new belt on just right, got ready to tension the belt and couldn't find where to apply force! I've changed many belts in my day and generally the bracket has a square hole where we can put a ratchet. I've added some pictures:
It only attaches to the bracket in two places-
the bottom right is the main pivot point
the bottom left is just for stability
in between is a ROUND hole on the bracket(makes no sense)
the top bolt is only where i would tighten after i got proper tension
Any ideas??? I'm trying to get ready for a big Thanksgiving trip!!
I'm desperate-I can't move the crankshaft or water pump pulleys! The air pump pulley is bolted in 3 places to the main bracket so it's immobile.
Use the actual nut holding the pulley on the alternator?? surely not................
