its been a couple years since i had mine off but im pretty sure there is a tensioning nut on top of the alternator in a little bracket. just turn it until the pulleys are close enough together to put the belt on, put it on, and then tighten it back up. and you did take the fan off the crank pulley first with the 32mm wrench right?
