Bumpyride Posted May 2, 2009 Share Posted May 2, 2009 Gents Been having a few transmission problems in general. Have got rid of a knocking sound when taking up drive - worn rear propshaft splines. Still have a knock when drive takes up, am planning to replace the ball joint and there is probably slack in the diff. More importantly when above around 50mph, with acclerator down, i get a transmission type whine. This fades when i take my foot off the accerlator, and seems to disappear if i disengage the clutch. So firstly any thoughts on likey candiates? - i assume gearbox and transferbox. The noise appears in either 4 or 5th and gets considerably worse with speed. - does this suggest transfer box? I currenty have a bit of an oil leak around this rear prop output flange - does this give any indication? Would really appreciate any thoughts on tests etc to further identify the culprit. Also have a planned camping trip of next week end round trip of around 500mph - if its the transfer box can i risk it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
