New squeel

On the return trip from Arkansas yesterday, we heard a loud squeel coming from what I think must be a bearing. The alternator is new, and turning the compressor on or off does not cause or cancel the squeel. So I think it is ether the PS pump or its idler pulley. What experience have you all had with this? The belt is good and taught, so I don't think its belt squeel.

Dude you said taught! Big ups for proper grammar! However I am going to throw the flag on "squeel". Im going to need to see "squeal" on any further posts. Move along citizens. Nothing to see here.

:haha: After 20 years in the aviation industry, I cant help the use of the correct terms and grammar, but have always spelled phonetically if I wasn't thinking about the words. Thanks for the korektshun.

FOUND IT!!!! I found that the squeal was most consistant when the lights were on, so I began to suspect the alternator. Using a hose as I stethascope, I confirmed it. When I started to remove the alternator, I found that the tensioning bolt had fallen out. (dont know how that happened, but the threads in the alternator were gone). A longer bolt with a nut on it solved the prob.
