Default hiya guys i installed a new tensioner assembly and ider pulley

to stop this chirping noise that i hear when i start the car in the morning and also the old tensioner pulley was wobbling so thats why i repalced it with the whole tensioner assembly also this chirp sound will go away as the car warms up, but i just replaced the tensioner and the idler pulley i made sure the belt was back on properly now the car still makes this squealing/ chirping noise every start up but fades away quickly but when i press gas pedal the noise comes back and gets louder as the rpm goes higher am at a lost, could it be the belt, what could it be?

The belt is 2 years old

96 gl ohv

Did you run the car with the belt off to see if it still does it? Could be the cam syncro being that you have a Vulcan.

If it is the camshaft syncro, the chirp noise will come from under the throttle body.

I had a Dayco belt that lasted only two years and it started chirping and it actually delaminated. There are two things I would do. Get some brake cleaner and while the belt is turning spray it on the water pump pulley it will clean any grease off. If the squeak comes back the belt is worn. If the squeak never goes away, it could be a alternator or waterpump bearing. These belts are hard to tell if they are worn.

when i put the new tenioner and idler pulley the sound got louder but it sounded a bit more different it sounded more like a squeal then a chirp, also the reving and the sound getting lounder the higher the rev just happened when i put the new tensioner and idler pulley on that didn't use to happen before its not the cam syncro as the noise is clearly coming from the passenger side.

the belt thats on there is a dayco poly rib
