Adsust your alternator do not tighten it up untill you have the belt on

Which pulley are you referring to? If it is the one at bottom of the engine that all of the belts go around, you won't get it to move unless you start the car. when you say it won't move, do you mean it won't spin or won't shift position to allow slack in the belt? If it is the alternator not moving, you need to loosen the bolts holding it to the bracket and then slide it so the belt will go on. Did you simply cut the old belt off without loosening the alternator first? Usually the alternator and any other accessory items sharing the belt have to be loosened on their brackets to get the belt on and off and then tightened to get it back on.
