Subject: C6 Noise

Before I ask my next question just wanted to say thanks for all the good
input on my welder question. I plan on holding out for a small MIG welder.
May as well do it right once rather than buy twice. In any case I have a
problem with my C6 in my '79 F250 crew cab. At least it sounds like it is
coming from the trany. When ever the truck is running I hear a high
pitched whine. The volume changes with engine RPM and will not go away
when the engine is hot. It shift about where it should and is very smooth.
The guy I bought the truck from said that it was the "pump"? That sound
right to you? The fluid level and quality look fine to me. Also what is
this "wide range" C6 that I have seen you talking about? Did it come
standard with the trailer towing package?

I believe you can pull out that piece with a pair of pliers and hold
it in position with a pair of vise grips while you bleed the brakes.
Don't think you really need that special tool in this case. Anybody
wanna jump in here if I speak untruths? Not sure how much it will add
to the proper bleeding of the brakes though.

PS. Chilton's or Haynes manuals should mention the same alternative to
using the special bleeding tool. Just in case you wanna check what I'm
saying here.
