Thanks Ekrem, Good to see another 32 getting up & running, hopefully. No, fluid too high wont cause them to squeal. Bit hard to diagnose over the net but it seems like you've isolated the noise to the Suspension/power steering pump. Best not to drive or run the car till you've sorted the problem. As I said earlier damage to the pump can be expensive & difficult to repair. I've got a 32 (310) which has major leaking from the rear struts so I've removed the pump belt (easiest was to cut it!) so I can move it around & not cause further damage.
Yes they are difficult to repair & maintain, but in my opinion they are the only soarers worth the effort! You are lucky thar some of your parts have been previously serviced & may not require repair. Both mine, 790 & 310 were untouched original, 790 has had a full suspension rebuild, 310 will require the same.
If a 32 is what you want & are prepared to go the journey then a 32 is a rewarding car to drive. Warning, it may not be easy or cheap!
No one knows what they are getting themselves into when they buy their first 32! I didn't but now have 2!
