I did mine last year with ACDelco belts, tensioner, pully, from Rockauto and they are great thus far. BTW, the AC belt and tensioner were fried and were the culprit for the noise on mine. Not sure if you did your AC belt and tensioner, if not, I would have a look.Starting a new thread because I need updated info. Have the cold start belt chirp, and can not locate a Gatorback or Continental Elite belt for it. New tensioner/idler installed this spring. Any sources in here?
Nice, my AC belt and tensioner were original and just replaced this year. The AC tensioner looked great until I pulled it off and found that the spring had no springy anymore. I think it was part spring, part corrosion and crud hampering the movement. Anyhow, the belt was typical of a 18 year old belt, crackly on the inside, outside looked great.I will confess -
I still have the original AC compressor belt (20 YEARS on it) and I have no issues living in DEEP south where it runs 10 months a year.
Other belt I am on second which I changed well under 100k (thread in here somewhere) with idler and tensioner sheaves.
NEVER EVER has mine chirped in 20 years...
