clunking noise coming from belt?

truck has come alive with annoying noises ;o)

lately i've been hearing a very subtle clunking noise coming from my belt/pulleys somewhere. it is definitely not belt squeak, and it seems to be worse when i first start the truck. it is intermittent; you'll hear some "clunking" for a second or two, then it will be fine for a few seconds, then more clunking, etc etc. kinda sounds like loose or bearings or something... i dunno.

any ideas?

how old is your belt ? maybe there is a chunk of rubber out of your belt somewhere.

seems like the sound is much more obvious if the truck is cold. as far as the hvac controls, it doesnt matter if its on or off, clunk is still there.

Not enough info to help you..
maybe get a piece of fuel hose or a "mechanics stethoscope"
and listen around for the area of the engine its coming from.
