Question about Ford Fairmont
There is a spring loaded "tensioner pulley" that has to be "unloaded" with an appropriate tool, the serpentine belt slipped into place, then the pulley is released, putting tension on the belt. Also, the belt must follow a specific path around the pulleys, or the belt will not fit properly. There should be a diagram under the hood that will help you, you may have to search for it, since the manufacturers seem to scatter them about.
