Where’s the squeak coming from ?

Get a long screw driver and use it like a stethoscope to try and track down the area the noise is coming from.

In days gone by an egg cup full of brake fluid in the cooling system would be a cure. Not sure how that would

effect the anti freeze though.

Another source in the vicinity is the alternator. I've had the Chinese rebuilds make that noise, then 6 months or 2 years down the line the electronics fail. Not bearings but suspect "movement" in the diode pack.

It’s a dynamo , will use a long screwdriver to locate the source

Kevlar make up in the fan belt can make lots of squeaky  creaking  racket.

You can buy a aerosol can of belt ease  ,    run the dip stick against the edges      , a good puff of talc will silence it .

A cracked pulley will also male lovely noises.

Found the source , depress the clutch and the squeak goes. It’s my old problem of clutch release bearing returning. The push rod from the slave is rattling against the clutch release

Paul, I am sure the aluminium bell-housing amplifies the noise. As you say an old problem.

Well done Paul. You've got a ventriloquist Triumph - it can "throw" the sound from the bell housing to the water pump! Makes sense I suppose - the noise propagates straight down the crank shaft to the front and you home in on the most likely candidate.

Cheers, Richard
