Need more detail; what engine, when does the noise happen (at idle, revving etc), does it change as you rev?

I had something like that a few years back - this post below lists some tests that will help:


Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, ever since buying the car and moving house, I've lost all the paperwork and receipts. Based on information from other Robin Hood owners and the little information I got from the previous owner a couple of years ago, I think it's a 2-litre Pinto engine, and the donor car was a Sierra. Also, I believe it has Yamaha R1 carburettors.

So the taping is during idle and yes it probably gets a little louder on acceleration.
