Bought an 86 fleetwood with olds 307, the car sat in a garage in kansas for 7 years before coming to ohio, drove fine for a week, water pump lines were dry rotted replaced them, the water pump froze, decided to replace water pump, alternator and power steering pump, oil change and the radiator flushed. When all the belts were back in place high pitched squealing and slight friction smoke from fan pulley area, however, when you remove the alternator belt and just the ps pump and water pump are running it runs fine, connect the alternator which is brand new and tested 3 times gets connected to the fan which has brand new bearings from the water pump and it squeals no matter how you adjust the tension or shim etc. Disconnect the alternator v belt and let the water, ps pump and fan run with no stress or irregularities, cant understand if everything is in line and new and checked and re- checked. As soon as tension is created between the alternator(new) and fan also ( new) ! I just cant figure it out?
have the same problem?
