serpentine belt

good evening 2004 f250 6.0 dual alternator. trying to put the belt back on and I am almost positive its routed correct. The tensioner tab is locked and I still need about 3/4 of an inch until its on my primary alternator. I need some help my # 508 414 1082 jon behuniak. worst part is how easy it was to take off.....

is it possible for anything to get loose and just make it impossible? pulley three is held on by the second belt (secondary alt) tensioner. I have gone over the routing, made sure the belt is actually in the ribs and still no go. I bought a new belt before I got into this and they are the same size. I just dont understand how it came off wiked easy and is impossible to install.

I have the correct routing, the belt is correctly in the groves, the tensioner is maxed out, and it seems that it just has no more give which I need about 1 more inch.

The tensioner's tab was in. What happened was the belt was twisted or pinched inbetween the block and tensioner pulley. From the top it looked like it was fine, but it wasnt ha ha ha so I am dumb. three years as a blackhawk mechanic and being an ASE diesel tech didn't help me on this one.
