    I think you can get that info on the RIVA site. Of course they tell you to use the sonic belt tensioner. I have used this type belt on dry sump pumps. Too tight or too loose and you are f..... Some peolpe just tighten till you can twist the belt 1/4-1/2 inch at the longest part.

    yes riva said to use the sonic tensioner
    skips posted on another thread that to not set it to the riva specs any way as the belt would fail at the riva spec

    so was woundering if people run it at 1/2" twist or what?
