Looking for some help on this issue. I just got the 350 back in the car and probably have 70 miles on it. Engine runs strong, but the alternator belt wants to squeal when I rev the engine quickly either from within the car or by hand operating the throttle. If I bring up the RPM's smoothly it does not happen, but thats no fun. Here's what I have done to no avail:
1. Tightned and loosened the belt, and put a little soap on the alt. belt.
2. Took off alt. belt, started car, no squeal when revved.
3. Thought that belt might be new and need some wear on the edges, so I took and roughened the belt slightly, still squeals.
4. I painted the belt grooves, so I took sandpaper and roughened the grooves thinking this would allow the belt to "catch" and again nothing.
I'm looking for help on this nagging issue, any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
