    There are couple of different size pulleys available for M60, as well as two different length belts in the first place...

    Easy to mix them all up :)

      Mine ended up being a bad tensioner assembly. I replaced the tensioner and I have no more noise.

        You're done!!
        Hey guys
        Firstly let me say I am no expect on mechanical things ,just learning slowly as I go.....if I never owned an e30 I probably would never been doing what I do now days. That said I was wondering is it possible to run the belt like in my attached picture. I don't understand how these tensioners work all I know it keeps the belt tight in place.
        Hope someone will chime in.......
        Also I couldn't find a 7k 1388 belt that everyone uses closest I got was a 6k 1390.
        Spare shop guy say it will run strong because its a heavy duty dayco belt.

        Thanks

          On my previous M60 I ended up swapping the lower smooth pulley out for a grooved pulley and ran the belt under the pulley, in my mind this allowed the tensioner to apply downward force like original.



          However on my recent M62/M60 build I did like yours, belt above smooth pulley and figure I have problems I can change it around later.
