Yeah so before you take the old belt off, have a feel of the belt between the pulleys.

about that tight.

if it whines when you start it up, it's too tight.

I could quote the SEEM units, but nobody knows what they are. It's all down to experience really. hard to describe the tension otherwise.

I'm sure you'll manage it
