Question about 1997 Mitsubishi Montero
After you set your timing marks, remove the bolt from
the center of the tensioner. Remove the tensioner, and put it in a vise with small wood blocks to prevent
any damage to the tensioner. Also there may be a plug at the base of the tens. place a socket or flat washers around the plug to prevent damage. There are small holes in the push rod and housing slowly
compress the push rod to line up the two holes.
And insert a pin in the holes. this will keep the
tensioner compressed until.you're ready for it.
Also be sure to closly match the new belt and the
old one. There are two timing belts for this engine.
One is a 195 tooth belt the other is 201, if the belt
you use is a little to long, it will slip on the water
pump and cause overheat problems.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.
