Unbeilvable, that was it, surpentine tensioner. Put the new belt on with the water pump change. I guess it was the weak link. That thing was making a rythmic knock that sounded like a small hammer rapping on the center of the front of the engine. When we stuck a wooded ax handle on the tensioner and put it to our ear it sounded like a bearing growling and a bunch of big bolts rattling in a coffee tin, nothing like the sound standing next to the truck. Now it's out in the garage running smoth as silk, Joe.
