A easy way to "figure out" is to match the face of the belt to the face of the pulley. Some pulleys have groved surface. So that must go with the groved side of the belt. The tensioner pulleys have smooth surface so it goes with the opposite side. Doing this typically helps me figure out the U -code taurus belt routing...
