My guess is the bearing , since it started with a light whine, got gradually louder and then backed off around 80 km/hour.

Re: autolite 1100 carb...still leaks.

Hi,

Check if the throttle shaft is still sealing properly.
My old 1100 was leaking like h#ll and had a very bad milage.
When the engine was off fuel came out of the shaft at both ends. When running I had a very big vac leak.

Problem solved with a vaporiser from pony.

Good luck,
