[Healeys] Adjusting generator belt

So I recently had to as the list a similar question.  I had forgotten about
the adjusting nut on the swing arm!  With the car on 4 jack stands, I ended
up using a 1x3 placed under the generator and used my small floor jack to
ease the generator up until I was happy with the belt tension, which I
checked using a homemade gauge and a hook (see attached photo).  I slip the
hook between the belt and the timing chain cover and check it midway between
the crank and generator pulleys.

Hello once again.

Just got my generator back on and cannot seem to get the belt tightened.
Thought I used a big pry bar from above, but it keeps hitting the valve
cover.  Do not think I did it from underneath last time.  Its been awhile
and cannot recall.  I really am not *that* old, lol!  

What do you guys use?
