Tips for a great answer:
Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.

Alternator belt tension is adjusted on these engines by means of a tension adjusting bolt.
On some vehicles it is easier to access a component from underneath the truck
Loosen the alternator pivot bolt with a box wrench or a ratchet and socket
Use the adjusting bolt to vary tension on the belt
