 If the alternator/water pump belt died you should
 consider replacing the A/C belt and the idler pulley bearings.>>

 Yes... and you have to take off the ac belt anyway to get the alternator belt on the inside groove of the crank pulley. The belt sizes are different for the Motorola and Ducey alternator brackets. I have my Motorola on a Ducey bracket and boy, the wrong belt does not fit!

 Do NOT "stretch" the belt. That can damage the internal cords and cause quick
 failure. You have to loosen the large bolt that "hinges" the alternator and the
 2 bolts on the tensioner arm. You will need some wrenches and a prybar to hold
 the alternator while you retighten it. You should recheck the tension again
 after a few days. On new belts they stretch and you may have to retighten. The
 best test is to try turning the alternator by the fan and if the belt slips you
 should tighten some more. If the alternator/water pump belt died you should
 consider replacing the A/C belt and the idler pulley bearings.
