    Name that noise!

    My 1982 Accord LX has a strange whistling / whine that I'm hoping you can identify. Video posted here https://youtu.be/NgS0-BsuXys.
    Thanks!

    Well, the valves need adjusting, but you're likely wondering about that scraping noise. It's a bearing going bad. Probably in the alternator or possibly the water pump.

    Thanks for diagnosing, Dr_Snooz. Can you tell the valves need adjusting because of the "click, click, click"? I have the factory manual and have adjusted valves on my onld VW before... any tips?

    Yeah. They make a lot of noise. The Honda manual outlines the adjustment procedure. I don't remember anything about the '82s personally.
