I have an 87 MC with the 4.3. I did not need to retighten mine until the next service interval. I check everything each time the hood goes up so they seemed to stay tight for me. Used NAPA belts on mine. Not sure how much or if the brand makes the difference. They are easy to change and tighten if you need to. Just do not over tighten them.
