    There is a tensioner gauge available. Get a service manual. If its too tight it could break the belt. Not a fun task to replace.

    correct it will be loose but as long as the nut on the idler is tight it wont go anywhere dont try and tighten it unless the idler nut is loosened or you will break the adjusting bolt

    Would the tensioner gauge be similar to a torgue wrench???? It would suck to buy the thing if i can to with a torgue wrench.

    thank you guys for the replies.
