Here is the page from the Lotus Esprit Turbo manual that talks about turning the eccentric tensioner counter-clockwise to tighten the timing belt.

To get the eccentric hub above the pivot bolt, as shown in the left illustration, it would have to be turned clockwise... which is not correct.

To get the eccentric below the bolt, as in the right illustration, turn it counter-clockwise.
