Hi Everyone
I have a 1985 HJ60 Sahara which has developed a high pitch squeal at idle when it warms up. I have looked for suspect but it is hard to track down. I am starting to suspect the clutch pressure plate but not sure. Anyone had any experience with this. I had a second HJ60 awhile ago which had a similar noise but I sold it before I got to the bottom of the problem?

Try spraying the fan belt with water. If the noise stops immediately you have got the answer. If not then try pushing in the clutch pedal while car is stopped but in gear. If it squeals then it is the spigot bearing in the end of the crankshaft. Good luck.

Hi Peejay,

All fixture and fittings under the vehicle have been checked for being loose. When cold the noise is not there. When warmed up the noise starts. Does not appear to be related to lights and definetly the aircon. If I am sitting at the lights and knock her out of gear and have the clutch out you can hear the noise. While sitting there if I raise the revs the noise goes away. Then when I take my foot off the accelerator the noise comes back. Sometimes I can hear it when I am changing gears as the revs drop whilst the clutch is engaged to change gears.

Any suggestions would be welcome.
Thanks
Rob

my experience says to check the bearings in any idler/tension pulleys.
