Developed a load squeal coming from my 2002 4.3L Mercruiser

Customer Question

Developed a load squeal coming from my 2002 4.3L Mercruiser coupled to an Alpha One outdrive.
Sounds just like a noisy fan belt. Removed the serpentine belt eliminating the belt/alternator/idler tension wheel/power steering and engine water pump.

Does it change if you turn the steering from side to side or put the drive in gear? It had water running through the drive when it made this noise correct?
