or...shaft packing too tight? Still, if the belt hasn't been adjusted since replacement and you have around 3/4" deflection(engine manual might have belt deflection limits), I'd give it a tweek. New belts will stretch a bit in the first few hours of use. Just don't over do it, over tensioning is bad on pulley and alternator bearings. There's another source, alternator bearings will sometimes squeal if dry. Might try opening the engine compartment and have a helper try to duplicate the rpm and load while you try to isolate the source of squeal.
Yeah, what Cam and Fred said, jeezh, I type slow!
