I'm trying to make a belt tensioning tool out of a turnbuckle. Prelim test shows it'll work. Just put the turnbuckle between the crankshaft pulley and the alternator and turn to expand the turnbuckle, it'll push the two pulleys apart. The trick is fabricating both ends of the turnbuckle so that it won't slip off either pulleys. Good luck.
