SERPENTINE BELT INSTALLATION

Engine Mechanical problem

when the belt tensioner is manuvered to the end of its range, should the belt go on easily or does it need extra effort to slip over the pully? I'm guessing that it is allowing for initial stretching of the belt. I can't do it with 2 hands and will need help, if that is the case. Triple checked for correct belt pattern and size, and they are good to go.
