Fixed a couple of problems...and potentially added a new one. Help please.
Ok, so this evening I received my upgraded thermostat housing kit from Tousley Ford (great people...got it out and to me in 3 days).
I put that on and fixed the dreaded leaking thermostat housing in my 2003 SVT, and also put on a new PCV tube since mine was being held together by duct tape for the last 5 months. As I was filling up the radiator and letting it cycle as I did before, I heard something fall and rattle around. Turns out, my poorly-placed radiator reservoir cover had fallen down into the belts. It is fine, however now I have a squeaking sound. Any idea what this is? It changes with RPMs and isn't always the same. Did I mess up a tensioner? It sounds a lot like a bearing or something, but I cannot see any obvious damage or anything.
