chirping belt

my last belt I put on over 2 years ago and it started squeeling so I replaced it. squeeling went away for a couple weeks. now I'm getting a chirping sounds when the printed label hits one pulley. if I wet the belt slightly it goes away so I know it's the belt. any tricks to keep it quiet?

I usually use a wire brush to clean the belt off. If that doesn't work, try exchanging it for a different brand belt?

Miss-aligned pulley? Have you checked it out with a stethoscope to find the exact location the chirp is coming from? Is one of the pulleys dirty?

I've found that chirps are bad waterpumps on gas motors... if there is no rust on the pulleys, the tensioner is good, then you may be losing a bearing on a pulley.

May not be your issue but I had this with belts sometimes and usually find that taking the belt off and reversing it helped. There is a point in the belt where they join them end to end and it's not always a straight bond. The belt is not allowed to wander in the grooves of the driven accessories but is allowed to wander on the idler pulleys. This sometimes causes a squeak. Of course in the old days when a belt was squeaking and someone was complaining about it we started the engine and laid a piece of hard hand soap on both sides of the belt and this usually made the squeak go away. By the time the soap wore off the belt was broken in and didn't squeak anymore anyway.

Never seen that before on a SD. Do they pop out and then up? Or do they swing diagonally? From the pic it looks like its harder to get into the truck, is it?
