Aging Auto Tensioner Accuracy?

In setting the correct t-belt tension on my ‘87na (using Bruce Arnn’s lates tool) - I found that I needed to add a significant amount of force beyond what the spring tension alone would have applied.

It does make sense that after 32 years the spring would have become somewhat weaker than when new…but it also seems that the “correct” tension as per the Arnnworxx tool is just a tad tight.

Would like to hear other’s comments…thanks!
