Crazy Serpintine Belt Squeaking

I have a 95 ZJ with a 318 magnum V8.

I've had this issue for a long *** time now and it's really driving me crazy . I have basically a new motor I put in, but yet my belt gets stretched after replacing it then driving a bit.

I've replaced - Belt tensioner, Alternator, Power steering pump, idler pulley, water pump, (newer) AC

Nothing is noticeably out of align but my belt gets stretched somehow then it sounds like it start slipping on my idler pulley???

I really don't know what to do anymore and I've spent like 100$+ just on different belts for them all to just slip.

Can somebody help me out and tell me what I'm missing here to fix it?

Since neither of you have told us what year and engine you have it's kinda hard to diagnose.

So I will assume you both have a 1978 Ford Cortina. Did you get the I4, the V6, or the I6?

Replaced the idler pulley?

I was going to say power steering pulley or bracket but I think the 95 had the steel PS pulley.

Either way, also check the power steering bracket for cracks.
