sc belt tension adjustment
I just tightened my belt using the adjuster guage according to the shop manual. I used a torque wrench to tighten the bolt going through the pully to 22 ft lbs. The book also says to tighten the belt tension adjuster to 27 in-lb. Doesn't that change the belt tension or is this after you have retightened the bolt through the pully itself?
Just to be clear, I simply
- Check belt tension, if too loose
- tighten the bolt with the yellow circle until I think it is the correct tension (clockwise)
- Tighten bolt with red circle to 22 ft pounds
- crank engine
- recheck tension with guage
- if correct tension do I do anything with the yellow circle bolt?
I think red circle bolt is the "idler bolt" and the yellow circle bolt is the "belt tension adjuster"
