Default alternator tensioner bolt - will you look at yours?

Been meaning to ask this for a while. The bolt to secure the tensioner just under the alternator belt is really close to the belt. To tension the belt enough it pretty much runs that securing bolt up to almost touching the belt, literally less than a 1/4". This is with a brand new belt as well. It's an 05 automatic. Is yours like that? I've examined and looked at it a ton and I don't see any other way of doing it. I may be just having a moron moment...

1/4" isn't bad. Did you get the right size belt? You may be able to get a shorter belt if it makes you feel better. They're usually pretty close though.

It's closer than.1/4" tbh. I have it tightened enough to where it just barely doesn't rub. If I don't then it squeals. I didn't know if anyone else's was like that or not.

I changed belts today with this post in mind.

With the old belt the clamp bolt was about 3/4 inch below the belt. With the new belt the bolt is just about in contact with the belt. I want to check the belt size listed in different catalogs and see if there is any variance.

Are all of your belts OEM? If so, there will be a number printed on them, it's the length in MM.

Nope, I've changed them. I'll swing by the auto store and see if I can get a shorter one and update here.
