Thank you CARADIODOC & JDL.
Yes, I do have a belt routing diagram. The tensioner pulley has a 15mm hex bolt head & I've got Craftsman sockets.
I've gotten all the way to the point where the new belt needs to slip on the last pulley. That's where I'm stuck though. Even with the tensioner all the way to the right, seems like I still need 1 more (frustrating!) Inch to make it onto the last pulley. The tensioner pulley seems like the best one to leave for last but I just can't get it on! Possible to buy a different belt by length, 1 inch longer, rather than go by make/model/year?
Thanks again you guys, I really appreciate your taking the time to respond.
