Can anyone tell me where I can find a picture or diagram to rout the
serpentine belt and give some advice on how to install it using the
tensioner? I read that one person said it was better to feed it up
from the bottom. My belt broke supposedly because the alternator
seized. I am replacing the alternator also which I have off already.
Perhaps there is a picture of the belt setup in my manual or
thanks in advance for any assistance

The AutoZone website at http://www.autozone.com has diagrams of the
Aerostar belf routing (unfortunately there are *two* diagrams for the
4.0l, so you will have to decide which one matches your Aerostar).

Maintenance -> Routine Maintenance And Tune-up -> Belts
My '93 4.0l Aerostar has a sticker under the hood showing the serpentine
belt routing. Any decent (or even a Haynes) manual will have a routing
Great! Thanks very much, The guy I bought the alternator from said
that there should be a diagram under the hood also, but none was there
nor in the owner's manual. While I'm at it I will see if I can find
where the motor is leaking (probably the rocker cover?). In any case,
I have bookmarked that site. :)
