Question about 1990 Dodge Caravan
I have installed a new water pump and now need to tighten the serpentine belt on my 1990 Dodge Caravan with a 3.3 litre engine. Please help!
You should have a tensioner look under the hood for a belt schimatic btw your local library has auto manuals its a good resource.

SOURCE: How to tension a serpentine belt
It sounds like you have an auto tensioner. There is a square hole in the bracket the tensioner is mounted on. Put a breaker-bar drive or ratchet-drive (3/8 or 1/2) in that hole -- this will allow you to move the tensioner so you can get the belt around the water pump.
