Default I'm very frustrated

OK -- I am really frustrated on this AC belt vibration.

I put a new AC belt on this AM, using a leverage bar -- so the flex in the belt is less than 1/2 inch.

When the car runs at idle without the AC engaged, the belt still flops up and down alot between the fan and AC pulleys.

Then, when I put the AC on, the belt vibrates up and down so much that it almost looks like it wants to jump the pulley -- it's that bad untill the RPM's climb over 1500

Can someone give me a comparison by running their engine at idle and see if the AC belt vibrates that much with the AC ON?

Thanks in advance.
