squeal?

ive just recently resurrected a 95. ive noticed a high pitched squeal on the right side, it is intermediate, but worrisome. it only happens occasionally and a blip of the throttle can make it go away..........??????

Could be something as simple as a loose heat shield on the exhaust, or other loose bolt somewhere.
That's the first thing I'd check.
Not a bad idea to check all the bolt/nuts as well as electrical connections every once in awhile anyhow.

If there is a chrome tube about a half inch in diameter that makes a 90 degree bend there is a water pump on that side

Curious if you found any solutions. My 95 makes the same noise coming from the clutch cover at 3000 rpm or so. Thanks

My experience with the water pump bearing had the noise mostly occurring at idle (Or maybe I could just mostly hear it at idle).
