It's not so much the alignment as it is the torque (primarily). Torque should align everything, not always the case but usually. Also the belt has to be centered on EVERY pulley, especially the topside (non-grooved). Hopefully you didn't actually over, but got the warning and immediately pulled over.
i didnt change the a/c belt so didnt need that tool , but looks like ill need it now.. since that belt broke too,,,
