Re: the noise is back!!

Which belt is squealing? In my case, the belt retreived from "the zone", is too narrow for the sheave on my alternator. The tight bend around the pulley, coupled with the belt riding against the bottom edge (instead of the sides)makes it squeal like mad for several minutes when cold. I'm going for a little visit tomorrow and grab a wider belt of the same length.
