QUESTION
Why is it that in order to tension the belt on some engines, you turn the engine and then re-tension the belt?  
ANSWER
This is a vital part of the installation procedure; it ensures correct textile compression (needed for some belt constructions) at turning the engine and that the belt is correctly seated in the pulleys before it is tensioned again. Without this vital step, the correct installation tension cannot be achieved.
