Alfa TS top-end whine?
I did the cam belt today and replaced the pullys .
A few dramas , water pump replacement leaked so i had to put the old one back in.
I replaced the pullys and the pump seemed good not long new.
There is a whine in the top end ?
Still there when the other belts are off , balance,alternator belts.
Do the water pumps whine?
This is the second Alfa TS engine i have had in with the idler pully mount stripped in the block.
Put a stud in the block and drilled out the head of the old stud to mount it .
Takes time, last one was real bad no material in the block so had to go to bigger size stud.
There is a Peugeot 206-306 pully that you can use but you can't use the balance belt unless you use a very short lock nut or with access to lathe machine the centre mounting.
*what do you make of the top-end whine?
I slackened off the cam- belt but no change.
You would swear it was a pully but the noise doesn't seem to be coming from the drive area.
Got me stuffed?
