Default Timing belt tensioner?

I removed the old timing belt tensioner last night. Are they supposed to be spring loaded? The old one I just used the allen wrench to turn it and it stayed put after turning. I haven't had a chance to look at the new one to see if it's spring loaded, but if their not how tight do you make the belt. I assumed they were self adjusting.

I don't know the make of your new tensioner, but I remember that the new one I put in my PT had a clip, so that when you install it, the tension is negative. When you install the belt, you pull the clip and that releases the tension. Hope this helps.
