Ok, here's the deal. I just helped my g/f purchase a 98 CRV automatic from a used car place. They just got the car from a dealer as a trade in, 111k. I noticed a few little things here there it needed was able to drop the price, cuz I will fix the problems on my own. One of them was the powersteering belt looked to be either the wrong size or missing a rib. Long story short, when we brought it home I changed a few things & replaced the PS Belt. Started it up & the belt rubs against the crankpulley. I tried playing around with it but it's clearly making contact. I noticed that the alternator belt was part # 38920-p2a-003 which from googling, turns out to be a civic AC belt. HMM...Before hand, I took off the valve cover to inspect the timing belt which was an aftermarket brand so assuming was changed. Did the mechanic install the wrong crank pulley?? (also the T-belt, looking from the pass side, some of the teeth didnt look too good but looking from the drv side, looked new. what's up with that??) So I installed the old PS belt back on (which btw is the correct part#56992-p3f-003) however it's missing a groove (2 grooves instead of 3). When I started it up again, it was still rubbing! Now I can't say for sure it wasn't before hand but I feel like I would have remembered the noise. So next, I try putting a washer between the top adjusting bolt & at first it seemed to work during fast idle but then began to rub as the idling came down. Which leads me to my next concern. I don't know if I'm being paranoid but it seemed as if the crankpulley was wobbling a little more than normal at idle. It could be me cuz I haven't seen a b-series motor in a year but I did check to see if the crankpulley bolt was tight & was. The powersteering pulley on the crank has 3 grooves for a belt but you can clearly see the last groove, closest to the engine allows no room for the belt & rubs against the side of the next pulley on the crank. So what gives? Any ideas?
