a squeaking... it sounds like it's coming from the carb. May be the head I can't tell.

any ideas?

first thing I would do is run it without the fan belt for a few seconds and listen.. that will rule out the fan squealing. Then move on to the carb or head.

It's one of your gaskets vibrating as air passes by it, creates a whistle sound. Either your carb or manifold is loose or the surfaces are not flat

Took the carb off and the manifold. Found a small bit of old gasket stuck to the bottom of the manifold... Cleaned the surfaces up.. Now sorted.. :)
