1971/72 220D belt tension

I have been fiddling with this for the past few hours - 1971 220D I cannot work out how to tighten the fan belt - I have two books which father in law has with car and of course they are either before or after this date - the ac unit makes it extremely difficult to get access behind there but there appears to be a threaded rod with a block which slides up and down and a nut on it plus a bolt which goes through the alternator at the top - cannot seem to get it to tighten up - not sure if I have it assembled backwards or if the nut goes below the block thing or above and pulls it up.
If anyone can provide simple explaination/picture/diagram would be extremely grateful

Thank you
