i changed the belt today because i was pulling out of the driveway and was tired of it squealing so i went to put more dressing on it and thank the good Lord i looked at it because this time the belt was only about a 1/2" wide! it had shredded! i went and changed the belt and it silenced it, but i had to get on the road so i didnt get to check any of the pulleys. i am going to check the pulleys tomorrow before i start hauling hay. are there any specific ones i should check, such as the tensioner and idler pulleys, i know the alternator and water pump are fresh, but what concerns me the most is that i think my power steering pump may be on its way out. could this be causeing the squeeling problems? because there is a faint squeel still.
