380sl smoking / screeching

Latest issue:
Had a non-start issue. Changed distributor & rotor and turned out to be bad Hueco replacement ICU. Replaced w Bosch & cranked right up. (Been sitting since October).

Now, lot of smoke from underneath rear of manifolds. Let it run for several minutes and something began screeching, sounding like a bad belt or something. I shut her down....

Where should I start?

Try some Belt-eze on the belts first.
