Ok so I got a brand new 140 amp police package alt, replaced the pully, and upgraded to Summits billet alt bracket kit and she still sqeeling sometimes even smoking belts and throwing them off!!!...What else can I do at this point besides surp conversion?...I hear nothing but bad things about Vbelt setups but my last motor had no issues "was about 100HP less though",,,my new motor is 345HP,,, how many of you guys like your Vbelt setups?...Could my hermonic balancer need to be pushed in more?...I replaced all the gaskets on the motor before install could the hermonic balancer need to go on further I pushed that thing on as far as I could I didnt wanna damage anything beating on it anymore than I thought she could handle...options?

I have no problems with my v-belt. I use a top cog belt to reduce any belt twisting. And your balancer will only go on so far, if things are not lining up you may need to shim your pulleys.

Which belt is smoking? If its the alternator the bearings may be bad. NEVER hit a harmonic dampener with anything!! Use the proper installer...
