Answers :

It is either the tesnioner or the belt....easy way to find out is to spray the pulley that has no grooves....that's the tensioner. Spray it with WD-40 or equivalent, in the middle of the pulley. That is the bearing housing. Spray only that first. Start the motor...if it goes away, then you have found your problem. Try not to spray the belt.
\015\012If it still squeals, spray the belt with the engine running. If it squeals, replace the belt.
\015\012Has anything been done to the motor recenlty? If so, one of the pulleys may be a little off-centered.
\015\012Let me know what you find.
