I don't know how others do it but the way I do it is like this:
Unbolt the bottom pulley.
Place the belt onto the water pump pulley and the bottom pulley.
Loosely install one bolt in the bottom pulley in a hole near the top of the pulley.
Using a small phillips screwdriver as a lever, place it through a bolt hole on the pulley and into the corresponding hole in the balancer.
Push it downwards enough to allow the installation of a bolt in the remaining open hole and snug that bolt down.
Tighten the first bolt installed.
Remove the screwdriver and install the third bolt.
Mikey has a C3 which I believe some of them have studs in the water pump flange instead of bolts. That makes it simple. On the other hand, for those of us that have bolts in that application, temporarily putting a couple of studs on the water pump flange until you get the belt pulley installed makes it super easy.
