Need help getting belt back on alternator after egr delete!

So I can't figure it out. Is there a trick. When I unbolted it I leaned it forwar then took the belt off and sat it aside. Now trying to mount it back and I tried leaning it back with belt and I just don't have enough *** to hold it down and get bolts in/ line up. Help please. Need advice

Lock the belt tensioner and just do it the proper way, these belts are to strong to do it the other way and you run the risk of damaging something. A 1/2 in breaker bar or ratchet with a cheater pipe will do the trick.

I just went to the auto parts store and rented the proper tool for 5 bucks. It worked great.

I do the same thing. But I have found that the 05 and newer 6.0's use a stiffer tensioner. I used to grab the belt with 2 hands and pull up and slip it over the alternator pulley. But then I discovered the lock on the tensioner.
