chirping sound in 350 chevy

I have a very loud chirping sound from my engine. I disconnected the belt to take waterpump and alternator and fan out of the equation. It is a manual transmission, however when I step on clutch it has no effect on chirping. So I think that would take out the throwout bearing. The chirping increases with rpm of engine. Any ideas?

Hi, try useing a long screwdriver to listen with on your valve covers ,could be a push rod or rocker arm, hold the screwdriver against the cover and put your ear against the handel of it to listen for the sound. Good luck Slim :screwy:

If it's any consolation, mine's doing that, too (1990). With all the other problems I'm having, I've been ignoring that particular noise. At least yours still starts :wink2:
Post back what it is if you find out. I'm sure it's something else I need to fix on mine once it's started again...
