What about clearance?
I am running into some of the similar problems: Former mech bent the tightening bolt, bracket, etc...
But the issue that I have-which I cannot figure out-is clearance: I took the entire adjusting bolt OUT-and still do not have enough movement to get the damn belts on!
I have a '82 300 SD, with AC. I have gotten the runaround from the local auto parts stores as to the correct size, anyway. Any hints?

This seller seems to have the sizes of the belts you need
1982 Mercedes-Benz 300SD Sedan - Filters & Belts - Page 2
I hope the link works for you - if not go through the choice menu.
On my OM617 (non turbo in a W123 no A/C so slightly different) I have removed the viscous cooling fan ('cos I wanted electric) and the best way I have found of putting belts on and off is to remove and refit the pulley on the water pump and then only do a small adjustment at the alternator.
