Thanks for all the suggestions. This was exactly what I was looking for when I decided to post here. Lets see if I can address all these items. The serpentine idea from the junk yard is a good one. If all else fails I will try this, however the first junk yard I called will not sell the pulleys off of any of their engines, they want to keep them complete. I have already tried watching the belt while revving in neutral and all looks great. It has to be under floor board operating conditions for the belt to go. I do know that after a belt rolls over it is junk as one side is stretched more than the other. No I do not ever hear belt slippage squeal and I keep it pretty tight. DjD, I am curious, what is a gator back belt. Is this a type of belt? So far I have been using Kelly Springfield and Goodyear. Using a straight edge and a 5" alternator pulley, I have discovered some minor misalignment. The alternator is tilted in farther on the side toward the water pump. There appears to be two reasons. First is the obvious, belt tension pulling it that way. Second is the amount of slop between the bottom alternator bracket and the 9/16" bolt that goes through it and into the head. Tomorrow I will try sleeving this bracket's hole to take up the slop and will also put washers between the bottom face plate bracket and the water pump.
