O.K. I've read Norm's article on belt sizing, and it sort of mentions tension...But I would like to know what the proper tension is supposed to be. I have always used the 1" rule of thumb, but recently found a belt tension gauge in my truck. Now, I know how to use the gauge, I just don't know what the proper setting should be. The guage is in grams and I think it goes up to 700. Anyone ever use a belt tensioning gauge? Or are we all still using the 1" rule?
By the way, Norm, very enlightening article!!!
