The problem is solved... For now
.. just kiddin. i installed the new tensioner pulley arm and all. Turns out, the old one was sort of bent (see pic) causing the pulley to spin cockeyed. Im so relieved not to hear this rediculous chirp any more.
See how the left side of the arm itself is gapped more than the right? That little offset caused big problems lol
Heres another pic of the old system
