Default Squeaky pulleys?

I changed my water pump and now there is a chirping noise that speeds up with acceleration coming from the belts/pulley. I couldn't find any torque specs for the idler or wp pulley. One of the idler pullers did make a clicking noise when I put it back on. The clicking noise was not as loud with the bolt being looser, but I had to make it somewhat tight.

I'm a bit curious as to what could be causing this as it was fine before the job.

you can try a little dressing on the belt

to test it, hit the pulley side of the belt while the engine is running with a quick squirt of wd40
