The chances of me explaining the noise accurately are prolly slim but here goes.... Fired her up on the trailer at the ramp today, and here this very audible squeal or maybe screech. Anyone in there right mind would probably pull the boat back out....so I went boating.sphss I can imagine nothing that could make the motor sound like that other than possibly an alternator, kinda thinking it's in the pump. Squeaked/screeched all the way out the idle zone...after a minute or so of running easy, I let off and it went away at idle. When I got back into it it came back at higher r's for a minute or so the disappeared completely. Any thoughts....the only thing I've done since the last time out is put on a new alt. belt, and pulled the bowl off the jet to try to figure out why I was getting no flow to the motor at idle. Sorry for the long read..
