Another good point. To get a correct reading you need to jack up the rear end to get the engine at a flat level

To make measurement easier in the future, I went through the above procedure to get the proper level, then let the car down in its normal parking place and inserted a small screwdriver and marked the correct level with a small file. After that I just inserted the marked screw driver to check the level with out trying to relevel the SC.

Try this. The stock one will not work as you drop the down to smaller sc pulleys

I will most likely look into that, much thanks for your input.

Its funny you mention that because when I top off my SC oil the noise tends to go away.... ever so slightly until it comes back

What's your method of draining the oil out? Some sort of syringe or soap pump?

OK, I use a "heepadermic nudal" A syringe with a short piece of tubing on the end. A basting syringe with a short piece of silicone. I use a strait pin through the end of the tubing and the syringe to hold it in place. Then cut the pin off.
I use a larger syringe and tube to do the same for diff and trans. I work on old English sports cars and often it is hard to get fluid in or out.

This noise completely goes away once the car is warmed up. Does anyone know what this could possibly be?

Your sound is belt slippage. Look at how the squeak is timed exactly with each complete cycle of the belt movement. It's most likely slipping over the alternator pulley. Once the battery charges back up from the drain of starting, it stops squeaking. Try cranking up the cabin fan and all the lights. Does it squeak again?

There may be shit jammed up in the grooves of the belt. I meticulously picked all the bits of gravel out of my belt. Cured the slip. Normal people might just buy a new one. Meh. It's therapeutic porch time for me. Other old people whittle.

Also with different size pulleys comes the need for different length belts. To set the tensioner operating in its most effective range, select the shortest possible belt that can be fitted without using special tools.

I remember that the recommended belt length squealed on a friend's sprintex-boosted engine. Fixed when I replaced it with the next step shorter. YMMV.
