Not sure what to tell you with the information given.
Can you check that the starter-motor is disengaging and it's not that you can hear whizzing round? It'll not last long if it's that.

Carbs don't get bled chap, you can drain them to check for dirt and water or you can balance (synch) them for smoother pickup

Coolant systems (Radiator etc) can be bled v0v

A whirring sound? Can you tell whether it is coming for the inside of the freezer or underneath the unit? I would suspect one of the fans either blocked by something or starting to go out.

If it normally fired up straight away, and now when you hold it down and release it only makes a whirring sound. Sounds like your starter clutch has failed.
There are little signs when this happens. Often after a successful start you will hear a small whrring sound, or you will go to start it and it will catch then release to a whirring sound.

I would check the stator, if all looks good then move to the clutch side. I am thinking that it might be the clutch springs that have gone bad

My 2000 Explorer makes a whirring sound when you accelerate - can this noise be due to a bent tierod? The previous owner had an accident involving the front end and was told that the tierod was haywire?

Typcially tie rods will only make a clunking noise or a squeak. The whirring sound if would suspect to be a wheel bearing. When you drive, slowly turn from left to right, if the pitch changes than its the bearing.
