Somebody asked me about belt tension (sorry can't remember who) - well I just looked in the FSM (page 2-4) for my FJ40 and found the following:

1. For trucks where the alternator is on the driver side, the section between the water pump and alternator should deflect 7-10mm (.28-.39in.) when 10kg (22 lbs.) of force is applied.

2. For trucks where the alternator is on the passenger side:

The section between the water pump and alternator should deflect 13-15mm (.51-.59in.) when 10kg (22 lbs.) of force is applied.
The section between the water pump and air pump should deflect 7-10mm (.28-.39in.) when 10kg (22 lbs.) of force is applied.

I generally go about 1" (total both directions pulling and pushing), so it's good to know it says so somewhere too!
