Use a long screwdriver, sticking the blunt end in your ear and the other end on different parts of the engine, to trace down the source of a noise. One thing that can do this is the generator. It COULD be the bearings, but I find that it is more often due to buildup of dirt on the pole pieces. This rubs on the armature and is easily fixed by just taking the generator apart and carefully wiping off the dirt buildup.
It's not the generator. I know what a screaming generator sounds like.
