The belt cover was warn out, the flat idler bearing was noisy. The flange bushing and hex flange bearing was worn out. The adapter-pully was broken.
I disassembled the warn and broken parts and replaced them with the new parts. Everything went back together very nicely. I definitely needed to pay attention to how things came apart, so I got each part back together in the right place and the right direction.
