Do you have an aftermarket belt system on it or is it a V-belt? 327 were around in the late 1960's/early 70's ... None came from the factory that way. With that said, your clarification will affect the answer I'd give to you. – Paulster2 Apr 7 '14 at 14:52

It is very likely to be your belt particularly if old or not tensioned correctly. Your workshop manual will explain in detail how to do this.A relatively cheap gauge can be purchased to set deflection
