Recheck your work, it sounds like it's still not set right. Did you do the complete kit or just the pump and belt? Could be an idler making the rubbing sound.

just the belt and pump,am new at this and didnt know about the kits and since i jumped into this without doing my home work,am paying for it now.am just thankful forthe internet and people like you who take time out ur day to help guys like me,that know just enough to be dangerous or mess it up beound fixing it yourself.but have no choice due to cash flow problems,so thanks again
