did you remove any part as in smog pump or air conditioner pump ?
if so re drill a new location pin hole on your belt tensioner mount about one inch counter clock wise and this will raise belt away from self and this will allow you to run a shorter belt

Better than a Ford but not quite a Lincoln

what accesories do you have on your 5.0? i'll assume the ps pump and alternator what else?

i only have the alt and ps pump (saginaw) and there ain't alot of room between the belts when tensioned

if it's too close yuo may have to put a dead/idler pully on to space em out

trying to get where i want to be

sounds like an idler will need to be added if the belt has stretched that much already.either that or relocate the tensioner as boris said.
