To align the two pulley to prevent "walk off" use a straight edge tool and square to make sure the two pulleys are in alinement.
You will start by putting the straight edge tool against the two pulleys and check the straight alignment, and the square.
You will normally adjust the motor to square the pulleys.
The compressor and its pulley stays locked in place.
You may have to use metal spacers under the motor to acheive this alignment.
The proper belt tension on the belt will be when you tighten the belt to where when you push down on the belt with one of your fingers or your thumb and you can only deflect the belt approx. 3/4 inch.
When you have the motor and pulleys aligned and the belt adjusted you will be good to go.
