Default 87 Toyota Camry ? About how to tighten power steering belt?

Hello I have a 87 Camry manual 4 cylinder. I have 2 questions if you could please help me with them.
1 How do you tighten the power steering pump? If you have a website that shows instructions and pictures of how to do this that would be great.
2 How do you know if the power steering belt is not tight enough?

Default ? on a 87 toyota Camry power steering belt

Hello to All,
I have a question on a 87 toyota camry 4 cylinder manual. What would cause/make a (new or fairly new) Power steering belt become a little loose. Of course I mean also besides the bolts coming loose that adjust the belt as I would think that would be highly unlikely. Please let me know your ideas/opinions on this question thanks.

Default question about power steering belt

Hello mickrig1,
I agree with you infact I adjusted the belt today wow hard job easy if you have the right tools though. On my car its only 1 (adjustment bolt) that you need to loosen then comes the hard part easier if you have 2 people. Which is to wedge a large screw driver to make the belt tight then tighten up the bolt. I did it today so hopefully that fixes the problem one thing for sure is the belt was way too loose. Thanks for your help.

I think they have an adjuster bolt on them to pull the belt tight. Then you tighten down the mounting bolts ( you loosen them to adjust the belt ). The book will give you the amount of deflection need when they are adjusted right.
