OK this is going to sound odd, but here goes
69 Camaro with a small block 302 set up; muncie M20. Engine has been completely rebuilt by professional. I've run the car for over 500 miles before I this started.
Recently, I've noticed a 'whining' sound upon acceleration. It almost sounds like a jet engine, but not quite...my first thought was water pump. Have all deep groove pulleys and new belts, all tighted.
It almost sounds like one of 3 things to me:
1. Water pump
2. Power steering pump, or
1. Water pump was a reman, car is not overheating and with the fan belt unhooked there is no side to side play in the fan and it seems to rotate smoothly. Long pump.
2. Power steering pump is reman and the correct round reservior type. It is full of fluid and the car does not "squeal" when turning the wheel as one would expect if pwr strg...
3. Alternator has been spun at NAPA, and charges up to 14.1 volts when measured in the car.
The only thing that is not correct is the car had a fixed fan blade, not the clutch set up.
Again, it only is noticable upon acceleration going up through the gears, I though the fan pulling air though, but it didn"t happen before...?
Told you this may sound weird. Thoughts, questions?
