noise from 289

I have a high pitch squeal coming from the front of the 289 engine. It didn't sound like it was coming from the generator (64 1/2). Sounds like a power saw,ugh.
Any thoughts?

OK, so what else is being rotated by the crank pulley? We know the GEN, what else? Be specific, please.

OK, so you have power steering, W/P and the GEN Remove the power steering belt to rule "out or in it's the culprit. Unless, of course, you can pin it down to it.

A number of years ago, I was leaving a car show when I heard a screaming noise and a "smell" coming from the engine compartment. Pulled over, (engine idling) popped the hood and saw the belt rotating "around" the power steering pulley. I cut the belt to get home. Afterwhich, further investigation revealed the roller bearings in the Eaton pump had seized.
