T is making a wining type sound during braking. Seems to be getting loader. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
Make that a whining Sound.
Steve, some whining during braking is normal but, if the noise is getting louder I suspect that the rear axle may be ready to fail. Has the rear axle ever been rebuilt?
Unknown, have had car for a few years but everything to my purchase is more or less unknown.
Any thoughts on how to verify if engine vs. rear?
If you have never examined the inside of the rear axle now is the time.
Steve, model T's whine during braking because the braking occurs through all components of the rear axle. The fact that the sound seems to be getting worse leads me to believe the rear axle is going south. Failure in the rear axle means no foot brake. I agree with Royce. If you do not know that the rear axle is in good shape, now is the time to go through it.
