    To be honest my friend did all the work. So I'm not sure we loosened "B" on diagram. That would explain why it did not move.
    I think we loosened it but it did not swivel much al all. We tried to use force and only moved like a quarter inch.
    After looking at the diagram I now see there is plenty of play for it to swivel much more than we got it to swivel.
    That amount may have definitely allowed the belt to go on even if it rubbed on the compressor pulley and had no clearance.
    The belt would have still been able to go on.
    The adjuster "C" only moved slightly and he said he loosened the bolts as far as they could go without pulling them out.
    Yes my Photo was taken directly from top not a side view.

    Loosen adjuster C until it unthreads from B then the PS pump will push all the way down giving more clearance.

    This is my rusty adjuster C.



    You may just need enough clearance to get over the lip of the pulleys.

    Thank you for all your help my friend. I had my friend for the 3 hours that we tried and we just got very little swivel movement from the Power Steering Pump.
    We also did everything from the top of the car as he had no means to lift my car or put it up and work from underneath.
    But I see guys all over YouTube do it all from the top with no problems.
    Going to NY for a week. When I come back, I will find another Mechanic who is mobil and just maybe I'll be lucky enough for him to show up.
    For something so simple, this has become a nightmare.
