147 Aux Belt length/part number

Hi everyone, I've just replaced my engine, 2.0 TS, fitted the new one (from a wreck with 65000 Km on it) with Cambelt, Balance belt, WP, Idlers, tensioners etc. All Good. However, the kit I got contained a Dayco 6pk1960 aux belt. I just cannot get it to fit - it's too tight. The old belt was a 6pk1962, and the extra 2cm means you can get it on. However, finding a 6pk1962 seems difficult here in New Zealand. Can someone confirm for me the correct length of the Aux belt (with AC), OR give me a hint as to how to fit the 6pk1960 if that's the right one?

Looking at the Alfa Workshop parts list here Alfa Romeo 147 Auxiliary Belt would suggest the belt part # is dependant upon whether it is an early or late engine #; scroll down to the bottom and you see 6PK1960 referenced. Have you put a spanner on the tensioner and turned it anti-clockwise? This should reduce the path length enough to get the belt on, then release the tensioner to take up any slack.

This picture should show the belt path, the tensioner is at the bottom between alternator pulley and crankshaft pulley; put your spanner on the bolt in the centre.
