one of the screws that hold the fan extension on, rubbing against the timing cover?

Hello Folks, I replaced the front crank seal that sits in the timing chain cover.It's a bit of a mission as the radiator has to be emptied and the support in front of the motor has to be removed to get the fan extension off.Purchased a new seal from Rimmers then had my mechanic friend insert it in the cover.Put it all back together and to hear a squeal, thought it was the belt so ran the motor without it, squeal still there.Took it apart again except left the cover on but loosened the fan extension, squeal went away, so not the tensioner.Put it back together, still squealed.Took it apart again and removed the cover this time had a look and couldn't see any problems, pushed the oil deflector back against the cog and put it all together again.It still squeals, it can only be the fan extension rubbing on either the deflector or the seal.Any thoughts as it's driving me nuts and i'm getting withdrawal symptoms from not driving the car.
Jim and the 1962 TR4 that was off the road for years being kind of restored.My 35th year with the car has just rolled over.** triumphs at autox.team.net **
