    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"
