take some rope and put it through the pulleys like the belt goes and make sure the clutch is in. than cut the rope or put tape where the ends meet leaving it a little slack. and that should be your length

I wouldnt do all the way in. Maybe 2/3 of the way in, but all the way wont get the best tension.
