belt tensioner 91 chev?

Hi i was wondering if someone could direct me to a tutorial or advise me on how to replace the belt tensioner on a 1991 chev atro van 4.3 with a/c. When I try to put the new one on the serp belt is to loose. And the spring is supposed to be pre-loaded. Is there a trick to this?
thx

thx for your reply..yes the belt is on properly. The problem is the tensioner only goes so far when tightened to bracket. There's a post on the back and it goes in a hole on the bracket, so you cant move it?
thx

thats right the belt tensioner is locked in 1 posision and is spring loaded just release tension and put on belt you may need a second helper since you have to hold tensioner if the belt is lose after instalation and the tensioner goes back to start point either you have wrong belt or the belt is not on properly
