Loose belts

1967 250s w108

finally got my brakes finished, took awhile.

Back out on the road.

Noticed the belts are loose-Power steering and alternator, spent an hour loosening bolts on the PS pump. noting that the adjuster doesn't seem to tighten the pulley. My manual has no info on this (Thanks Haynes).
Does anybody have a diagram they can upload for me or spill out the step by step process on this procedure? I seem to be missing something. At this point pump seems loose but pulley is not pivoting?

Any other items in line w the ps pump? My 280s has an 'air pump' (related to long-ago removed emissions equipment) in line w the ps pump that is tensionable.

Had a look with a bigger flashlight. It looks like Ive loosened the air pump, looks as if the pulley has been removed. and is just hanging out under the powersteering pump.With my low light I thought the air pump and powersteering pump were one and the same.
Guess I need to find the bolts that loosen the PS pump. Thanks jmela
Clues? as nothing is jumping out at me. is it the same as the Alt, as I have located those?

Missed the bolt by the fuel pump, things are working now. More light does wonders. Once again thanks jmela.

Your car looks great! Hopefully you can find some wheel trim rings.

Nice looking car!

Get thyself a Mercedes BBB manual (Big Blue Book). Nobody does service manuals like MB.

Thanks Plan on rings in the future, working on the mechanics at this time. Car came with an old set of bundt rims, they were trashed, picked up an original set of steelies, that are pictured. I know they should be the body color but went with black instead. I have a set of the newer style caps hanging in the garage, but I like the older moon caps better.
Plan on fitting some white walls when I buy new rubber.
I'm just glad to have her back on the road. I had to bend and flare new brake lines, new hoses, new calipers, and pads on all fours.I Also had to pull the axles and replace the seals. I have a big to do list on this car, but I'm happy with it. this car and I are the same age.

Ive kept an eye out for a good used one, they tend to be a bit pricey.
