I think this paricular piece of OEM equipment is finally talking loud enough that I need to replace it. Bearings of course. Anyone got one for less than and arm and a case of beer. I am replacing the belts this week and that would be a good time to do both.

I'm assuming you can't just try and squirt a little oil on it and the loud squealing will magically go away. Beer sure didn't work.

Bearing noise or just noise? Take that sucker apart....might just be corrosion sticking the vanes to the rotor.

When I was refilling the radiator after I flushed out the heater coils some fluid got over into the pulley shaft and made a baaadddd noise until it dried out. Than just the light squeeling that I have been used to.

When I got rad fluid on my belts, they were gone. Dry or not. Had to replace 'em. Possibility?

Try a little belt dressing on the belt that drives the air pump. If that cures the squeal for even a little bit, then you know the pump is okay and belt replacement is in order. NAPA used to sell an air pump for about $100 or so.

I have an 83 air pump on the parts 60. It might be the same.

Quicker than that.....spray wd-40 on the belt! If it's the belt the noise will diapper imeadiately but do remember the WD will wear off rather quickly!
