MikeStavish Posted June 19, 2015 Report Share Posted June 19, 2015 I have a 74 Eldo convertible. It's been garaged for a couple years with little road time. I do start it somewhat regularly and run it a bit. Recently the old dog's developed a really loud screeching squeal. I'll start it and sometimes it'll run for a minute before the noise kicks in, but after it does it won't simmer down. Its so loud I worry the neighbors are getting irked. I can't tell if it's a belt or a bearing somewhere. The alternator is a rebuilt model and not that old - I don't think that's it. It kinda sounds like it's coming from the ac compressor, but I can't really tell. I sprayed the belts and that didn't help. After its idled a while, I notice an odd subtle burning smell. I'm thinking I'll need to get it re-registered and roll it into the shop as this is probably beyond my skill set... but maybe not? Not looking forward to that loud trip. Any advice?
