Hey guys, I have a recently rebuilt red top SR with about 1000 miles. Yesterday I started up my car and I heard a whining noise that kind of sounds like a super charger that would increase with RPM's as I revved it up..

I decided to trouble shoot and took off all the belts and started the car with no accessaries on the crank pulley. Well the whine is still there. It seems like its coming from the crank pulley area. I took off my valve cover and turned the motor over with the starter to see if it was coming from my valve train but it is not... the chain also has tension..

Has anybody ever encountered this problem? please help :( thanks
