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.
