    Belt tensioner?

    How many lbs. should the bolts be torqued down on the belt tensioner? I replaced the belt for a squeal, and still get it on occasion, and on my lt1 it was because the bolts weren't torqued right. Once I got them to the proper lbs. it stopped, I just can't remember how many lbs. that was.
