Squealing noise

Post by rpm750 on Wed Apr 25, 2012 7:00 am

On the way back from BAP I noticed that there was a noise coming from some where. We finally figured out that is was coming from the engine. Once we got off the interstate it didn't do it again. This morning driving into work the noise showed it's head again. It starts around 58 mph, not sure what rpm that would be. I'm thinking bearings in the alternator or it's the dizzy. Maybe trans or CV's? The engine runs great and produces good power. Doesn't do it going thru the gears.

My 3 rib setup runs about 3600 rpm at 58. Maybe the hamsters were complaining?
Seriously, my guess is anything but the motor or tranny. Alternator or cv's.

does it quit when you drop below 58 mph and idle?

Found the problem. When we left, and this sounds stupid but when we left BAP I put all the clips that we used to hold our curtains on the metal frame just behind me the driver. You know clipped them on the to headliner frame. They were ratteling. Well in my haste to figure out the problem I swapped Dizzys last night now the engine runs 10 times better @ all rpms especially the low end. Thus the rattles are even less. I figured it out on the way to work this morning and at a stop light I removed the clips about 12 and the noise went away. So long story short, dizzy setup not where it should be and stupid me trying to be nice and neat. It ran too good to be a major problem. Again stupid situation but since it was close to my ear it really sounded big to me.

Note to self: When feeling sneaky, hide things that rattle in Bob's bus.
