IIRC this can be as simple as the belt stopping before the motor has completely stopped. Or vice versa...It shouldn't hurt anything.

that is perfectly normal. my truck does it whenever it shuts off too. its because when you shut your truck off, everything that is rotating(crank,pistons,alternator,fan) Everything stops instantly because of the ammount of compresion the engine makes. do not worry about it, its normal

I believe Genos has a one way clutched pulley you install on your alternator. I do miss that trademark Cummins belt chirp.

I believe a Goodyear Gatorback belt will cure your chirp.

A few seconds of WD-40 while running makes it go away for a little while.

My 2000 has done it since the day I bought it(on it's 3rd belt now), I believe what happens is the engine shuts down instantly(like stated above) and the fan has some momentum built up and can't stop that quick.
