no auto belt tensioner?? just guess it?
 
i need to put on a new belt soon. since their is no automatic tensioner do you guys actually go out and buy those belt tensioner gauges or do you just guess it at about 1" play?

Make sure its not too tight otherwise it will ruin the bearings.

Spend $15 at NAPA and get a krikit II tension gauge, removes the guess work.
