Can anyone help? Had bottom end rebuild done by Middlehurst 400 miles ago + new steel turbos. Running in at present...600 miles to go & counting. When I start the engine from cold I get a squeal from engine bay that is reminiscent of a failing "Mini" water pump from circa 30 years ago! It lasts at most 2 seconds. I will obviously mention it to Middlehurst when it goes back in for oil change..but in the meantime any ideas???

squeal

Hi Nedos,

Are you sure that squeal is from the engine bay and not your wallet????? :eek:

Hey.......it's no use talking about 30 years ago here........
most of these folks weren't born then, save that for the Old Git's section........... in fact, I'm waiting for your next comment over there, we're way down on page 2 now. :cool:

Squealing

Squealing for a second or so on startup is almost certainly the starter motor... has happened to me twice. The culprit is usually the abrasive clutch dust mixing with the grease. A simple clean out and put back together usually does the trick.
