From the Shop Manual...

GENERATOR/POWER STEERING BELT
(1) Loosen tensioner pulley locking nut (Fig. 1).
(2) Loosen belt adjusting bolt (Fig. 1).
(3) Remove generator/power steering belt.

AIR CONDITIONING BELT
NOTE: The A/C drive belt self tensioner is NOT a
dynamic tensioner. After adjustment the tensioner
bracket bolts are tightened. The torsion spring is no
longer responsible for tensioning the A/C belt. The
torsion spring is only used for initial belt tensioning.

(1) Remove generator/power steering belt to gain
access to A/C belt. Refer to GENERATOR/POWER
STEERING BELT for procedure.
(2) Loosen BUT DO NOT REMOVE tensioner
locking bolt and pivot bolt (Fig. 2).
(3) Insert 1/2” drive breaker bar into square opening
on belt tensioner. Rotate tensioner counterclockwise
until belt can be removed from pulleys (Fig. 2).
(4) Slowly rotate tensioner clockwise to relieve
spring load.

INSTALLATION
AIR CONDITIONING BELT - NEW
WARNING: DO NOT REMOVE A/C BELT TENSIONER
LOCKING BOLT WITHOUT FIRST HOLDING THE
TENSIONER WITH A 1/2” DRIVE BREAKER BAR, AS
PERSONAL INJURY COULD RESULT.
NOTE: Verify that torsion spring position is in the
new belt position before installing a NEW belt (Fig.
4). If torsion spring is not in the new belt position,
follow steps 1–7 to change the tensioner spring
from the USED belt position to the NEW belt position.

(1) Insert a 1/2” drive breaker bar into the square
opening on the tensioner. Hold counterclockwise pressure
on tensioner while removing the locking bolt
(Fig. 2).
(2) Carefully release spring load of the torsion
spring on the tensioner.
(3) Remove pivot bolt, tensioner, and spring from
front timing cover.
(4) Insert spring arm into the NEW belt position
on the tensioner (Fig. 4).
(5) Install torsion spring, tensioner, and pivot bolt.
(6) Install pivot bolt. Tighten only finger tight, at
this time.
(7) Using a 1/2” drive breaker bar, apply counterclockwise
pressure until locking bolt can be installed.
(8) Install the NEW belt by rotating the tensioner
counterclockwise until the NEW belt can be installed
on pulleys. See (Fig. 5) for belt routing.
(9) Release tensioner and remove breaker bar. Belt
is automatically adjusted with the tensioner’s torsion
spring.
(10) Tighten tensioner locking bolt and pivot bolt
to 28 N·m (250 in. lbs.) (Fig. 2).
(11) Install generator/power steering belt. Refer to
GENERATOR/POWER STEERING BELT INSTALLATION
for procedure.
GENERATOR/POWER STEERING BELT
INSTALLATION

(1) Install generator/power steering belt on pulleys.
(2) Tighten belt adjusting bolt to proper belt tension
(Fig. 1). (Refer to 7 - COOLING/ACCESSORY
DRIVE/DRIVE BELTS - ADJUSTMENTS)
(3) Tighten tensioner locking nut (Fig. 1).
ADJUSTMENTS - BELT TENSION
Use belt tension gauge, Special Tool 7198 for conventional
V-belts and Poly-V belts. For Special Tool identification,
(Refer to 7 - COOLING - SPECIAL TOOLS).
Adjust the belt tension for NEW or USED belt tension
applications. Refer to BELT TENSION
