1979 Fan noise

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1979; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3L turbo / no mods; Total Mileage: 55616;

I started up the car tonight for a quick spin around the area and heard a noise coming from the area of the fan. it did not sound like your normal fan belt squeal. More like a bearing going bad or a similar noise. It doesn't sound like it is coming from inside the engine. The belt is at regular tension - 1/4 inch movement at midway between pulleys. Are there bearings on the pulley or in the fan? Are there any quick remedies to the problem?
