Loosen whatever is keeping the belt tight (probably the generator) remove the old belt, install the new belt, tighten whatever is adjustable (probably the generator).
Hope that helps. :D

You have to pull the flywheel to replace the belt.

On a K, you can remove the starter and the belt slips around the flywheel. IDK if any different on a model M.

Not on my cruiser, no room between the the wheel and the bulkhead.
