Startup after engine warm.
Sounds like a ball bearing in the early failure stages. Water pump or alternator ? I would remove the belts then run the engine for a moment while listening for that sound. With the belts off, engine stopped, spin the water pump and alternator by hand and feel for excess play in the pulleys. Should be next to zero play and quiet when they are spun by hand. Look at the belts too to check for damage, cracks or heavy wear.
Hillbilly's suggestion is what I would also recommend.
Yes,check all the belt driven accessories.My nickel is on the air pump..
Was your Wife sitting in the Passengers seat When you heard the Whining, Clacking, Rolling Pin to the Noggin noises?
Or you could stick a really long screw driver (handle side please) in your ear and lean over, touch the offending parts (not the parts that are moving please) and "hear" each rotating device. The "loud" one is your problem the others will just "VVVVVVVVVV" unless of course you have multiple problems. This coming from a guy with significant hearing loss that had to learn how to hear what I can't hear, it's called bone conduction and works very well.
Close your eyes, and think that 3 times quickly.
Don't say it to your wife.
I use bone conduction to trace down bearing noises; good ones will hum like a Ma Bell phone circuit, and bad ones sound like marbles getting crushed by a pavement roller.
Did anybody notice the puddle of fuel under the carburetor when I zoomed in on the carborator. The carburetor seeps from around the bowl area (not a lot). I believe my fuel evaporative system is hooked wrong as when the outside temperature gets hot and the fuel vapors expand from my fuel tank and trough the fuel evaporative canister, I think it's going straight to my bowl (instead of being held back) by the water temperature controller valve on the water pump and pushing out fuel from the carburetor. Is that possible?
You're talking liquid fuel vs. vapors, and I would say no. What I think your problem is, is that either your float has a problem, or the needle and seat are worn. If you have the factory 2150-2V, removing the top to check/service that is fairly easy. Just have a tray for the parts and screws, and take a few pics before you disassemble it.
As far as your fuel puddle goes check the power valve on the bottom of the carb. They are prone to leaking if the carb was rebuilt, the inner gasket around the valve can be torn easily if your not careful.
