Tension Spec for belts

I have a 94 Mazda MX6, 2.5L V6, 5 spd. I hate to do this, but can someone post the tension specifications for (1) Power Steering/Water Pump belt and (2) the alternator/AC belt. I have searched for 30 minutes now and can't seem to find it. I had them printed out at one point, but can't seem to find that either.

I am looking for the tension specs in terms of POUNDS (lbf) not inches of deflection.

If anyone can help I would be very grateful.
Regards,

Just tighten till you cannot twist the belt with your fingers more then 1/4.. Ive always just eye'd it up. To tight - it will wine To loose - it will squeel. Ive never seen torque specs..

Found these specs in a 1993-1997 Probe Maintenance write-up by Mike 94PGT.

For 2.5L V6:

Alternator and A/C (new) - 160 - 190 pounds
Alternator and A/C (used) - 110 - 150 pounds
Power Steering (new) - 130 - 150 pounds
Power Steering (used) - 88 - 120 pounds

Looks like Mike94PGT's specs are dead on.
