Question about 2001 Ford F150 Styleside SuperCrew
This sounds like a serpentine belt (has grooves on one side) - the smooth side of the belt will lay across the tensioner it's easier (usually) to run the belt around and use the tensioner to set the belt in place (use ratchet and socket).
Or, start with the tensioner and use the alternator (loosen the alternator) to tighten the belt.
Either way you choose, it's best to have two people do it - One hold the tensionor (or pries the altenator to tighten and tightens bolts on alternator) and the other puts the belt over the tensioner; then the person on the tensioner slowly lets off the pressure of the tensioner.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.
