Sherpa timing belt tension?

I'm replacing the timing belt on my 2.5 diesel sherpa engined Landy. I can
see how it is meant to be done, with a torque wrench. But I can't find any
info on the correct tension.
Can any one help.

John

I followed the instructions for the landrover 2.5 when i did mine.
Still working now! :)

I reckon that they are similar enough that it'll do.

Thanks Tom
I've got a manual which gives,
13 / 15 ft/lbs for the 200tdi engine
10 / 12 ft/lbs for the 300tdi engine
But nothing about the 2.5 engine :-(

I've got a landrover 90/110 workshop manual here.

For the LR 2.5 diesel it says that the tensioner should be set to
29-23.5 Nm/21 to 17 lb ft.
Then do two complete engine revolutions, and then slacken and
re-tension to the above torque.

If you want me to scan the relevant pages in the workshop manual i can
do so. It is easy because it is ring bound so they will go
individually into the scanner.
