belt tension

To adjust the belt tension loosen the three bolts( two of them have adjusting slides) and take a pry bar and insert between the bracket and pump to tighten. bob leverette ashford, al.

Yes they will fit. Note: steering arms on S10 spindles is shorter, this will quicken your steering.

There is no way to adjust the belt tensioner, if it's not keeping enough tension on the belt the complete tensioner itself will need replaced.

If the tensioner isn't working right, you replace it. Tension is determined by the tensioner and is not adjustable.

Check next to the steering column against the inside firewall
