decently tight with a 3/8 ratchet is fine, although I'm sure the proper spec is somewhere in the 20-30ft lb range. Not too much, but not too loose.

I must have done over a thousand waterpumps by now, never torqued a single one, never had a leak caused by improper torquing.

okay thank you. and if you could possibly answer another q for me? i had to buy a pulley spacer with my new balancer and it says it included an adapter ring that goes between the damper and the spacer, but i didnt get one with it. could i just install the spacer straight up?

I'm not sure. I've never had to install one.
