YOU NEED TWO 6MM DRILL BITS, THERE ARE TWO HOLES TO PUT THESE IN, ONE ON THE CAMSHAFT AND THE SECOND ON THE PUMP. SLOWLY TURN THE ENGINE BY HAND UNTIL THE TWO HOLES LINE UP WITH HOLES BEHIND THEM, THEN PLUG WITH THE DRILL BITS. ITS NOW SAFE TO REMOVE THE BELT BY TAKING OFF THE TENSIONER AND LOCKING OFF. PUT ON THE NEW BELT AND RELEASE THE TENSIONER SLOWLY AND REMOVE THE DRILL BITS. TURN THE ENGINE BY THE NUT ON THE CRANK SHAFT A COUPLE OF TIMES. THEN PULL BACK THE TENSIONER ALL THE WAY, THEN LET IT GO SO IT SNAPS AGAINST THE BELT, IT IS NOW TENSIONED AND JOB DONE
