Did you loosen the bottom bolt on the adjustment arm?

Seeking the collective wisdom.  When I installed the generator on my newly rebuilt engine last December it was a tight fit.  Fine, I thought.  After 1,500 or so miles, Saturday the generator light comes on.  Upon inspection, the belt is intact, but I can turn the generator pulley by hand and the belt has too much play.  No problem, just tighten it up.  Wrong.  With all my strength I can’t get the generator to do more than barely wiggle with the mounting bolts fully slackened.  Thoughts on the best way to free up the generator’s up/down movement?  I’ll probably need to file down the ears a bit to make for an easier fit.
