[DML] Re: Alternator Belt

So what exactly is THE correct way to adjust the tension of a belt? I have  
heard and read that you should be able to deflect it about a 1/2", but this  
method always makes me wonder about how hard to push on it.
Also what is the best way / tool to use to apply the tension with.  I  seems 
to remember that on a Dodge I had there was a place to attach a  torque wrench 
to the alternator so you could actually measure the tension. 
...It is unlikely you will get the correct tension doing it with the  
screwdriver as 
tight as you can method.
