HELP. I HAVE A SQUEAL AND CAN\'T FIND IT!

I have a 1972 K5 Blazer with a 400 small block that recently started squealing VERY loud. Sounds like it is coming from the front of the engine. The engine only has 2 belts on it, one from the crank to the water pump to the alternator, and the second from the crank to the power steering. I removed both belts to find where the noise was coming from, and found that I still had the squeal. The only thing left is the crank....Has anyone dealt with this in the past? I am at a loss as to where the noise is coming from?????
Any help would be appreciated...

Thanks

bearings, brackets or belts. easiest thing to do is make sure all your brackets are tight. then replace the belts. if that doesn't help, you might have bearings in a pulley that needs replacing.

You have the crank, the timing chain and the cam shaft. Pull the timing cover and check to see if the chain is rubbing on the cover or if a gear is loose in there. Wish you luck with this. If it's not, it may be the crank bearings.

aight slick i may have narrowed down your squeal, you didnt mention if you had a manual or slapamatic, if its a manual you might wanna think about your throwout bearing
