"Whining" noise from engine Ford 90 Thunderbird

335

Asked by Dec 27, 2015 at 10:28 AM about the 1963 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 196 Thunderbird the motor runs fine but if I rev it at about 2000
revs it starts a "Whining" sound. Ive disconnected the alternator belt and
water pump to check those two items oft, New oil, no other sounds, the
engine runs very smooth and quiet. also this is when the car is stationary
and when running.
any suggestions its NOT a rattling sound just a high "WEEEEE" etc.
Thanks Neil Willis

Usually it is the power steering unit that wines...

If there is an idler wheel in the fan belt system the bearings could be going bad.

Does the whining get louder if you turn steering wheel ? If so like Rowefast mentioned it's the power steering.
