Re: Rattle @ idle only under load (A/C)
I've had quite good luck with Gatorback belts keeping things quiet.
And I did have a waterpump bearing noise that had me worried that it was the AC clutch -- until I put on a shorter belt to take it out of the circuit and voila -- the noise was still there. Isolating noises to their root cause can be challenging, but it's worth your time trying the cheap approaches first. If my timing chain started to go, I'd sell/scrap the car. Too much hassle on a 21 year old car.
