On my 81 I have noticed when i crank the motor over to start, i hear this sound like a low speed crank siren or something. I really cant describe it to a "T" but thats the best I can describe it. Anyone know what this could be? and if so, is it harmful, or something about to blow? or need replaced??

Much Appreciated.

I know that sound!
That's the sound of your battery going low on charge.
Put a charge on it and see if it goes away. Otherwise maybe new battery time.
