Are you install a new one? Or just a new belt?

All Ford tensioners for the 6.0 have a metal tab on the bottom that will lock the tensioner in the open position. If you have routed the belt leave it off the alternator, grab the belt and pull hard. Reach in and lock the tab. This can be done by one person it is a pain.....
