Update: I tightened the pully's I got a quarter turn, then put a little belt dressing on the belt, normally I hate using that stuff but thought I would give it a go and the noise went away. This morning I started the car and the noise was back and much worse, it stuck around until I got on the highway then it went away and did not come back the rest of the day. So I guess that means the sound is deffinatly coming from the belt, it was too dark yesterday to check the pully alignment so I will have to check that another day.
I get about 50 lbs before the tensioner moves, but that is with an old cheap tork wrench, could not find my good one yesterday!
Any thoughts on the banging sound I hear sometimes when I start the car for the first time? Belt slap?
Is there a identifacation number for the gator back belt?
