Howto - Belt tightening tips

From: Dale Olson

 I remove the top water pump bolt and install a 3" bolt and use a BF 
screw driver as lever. It's kind of hard to describe how to position 
the screw driver but the long bolt acts the fulcrum point. Be sure to 
have "all" the PS bolts loose. I take out #1 plug and disconnect the 
coolant sensor wire to get at the nut on the backside of the PS pump 
bracket. After I get the belt tight I tighten the bolt on the 
top/front and then the others. Now reinstall plug, sensor wire and WP 
bolt.
