When installing new belts, never pry the belts over the pulley grooves.
e. To adjust the belts, move the motor

normal thumb pressure the tension is correct.
Do not adjust the V-belts too tightly as this will overload motor and compressor
bearings. Also check and be sure pulley alignment is maintained.
