Does it also whine when the transmission is in neutral with the clutch up, or only when moving?

It makes the noise only when the clutch is engaged either moving or still.

The only thing I can think of that would cause a noise when it is in neutral would be either the front or rear main shaft bearing, or possibly the pto pilot bushing. If it is the pto pilot bushing it should stop when the pto is engaged.
