fastener preload

Still trying to learn about Mechanica. I have an assembly with fasteners. I
preloaded the fasteners with 900 lb. The only load is a G load in the
opposite direction of the fastener load. However, after running, the tensile
force in the fasteners is around 300 lb. Is that the actual tensile force in
the fastener or do I add that to the 900lb preload?
