I was able to put a breaker bar on my harmonic balancer and with out it in gear it tightened about a quarter turn and there suposed to be at 90 lbs I believe. I'm change my alt and get a harmonic balancer installer tool and torque it down. Just a quarter turn made it squeal less on start up. I don't have a/c. My engine is just a 1992 4.0 ho with p/s. my belt is 71 inches long. It pissed me off when I put a gator back belt on it and it got WORSE. I was surprised cuz of all the good things iv herd about them. That's what makes me think my harmonic balancer moved outward cuz when I put the belt on my power steering and altornator were skreeching not even a squeal anymore

So how'd you put the belt back on? A 71" is the standard belt for a YJ W/O AC but with PS. The proper way to install and remove the belt is to loosen the PS pump. IIRC it's 3 13mm bolts. Might be 15mm. Two on the backside and one on the front up high. Once those are loosened there is a lock bolt at the bottom of the PS pump. loosen that. Under the PS hoses pointing at the driver side fender is a long bolt. Loosen that and you will be able to move the PS outward, tightening the belt. If you tighten it it will draw in the PS pump allowing you to remove the belt.

I'm betting the belt is too loose and your alternator when under load is slipping enough not to be able to recharge the battery. If your pulley's aren't aligned then the belt would come off.

My alt charges just fine. It's just the harmonic balancer looks like its pushed out and I know how to tighten my belt bro no need to tell me. It's not to loose.
