Hello Just got home with my new toy a swb 1972 Series3 diesel, when i bought it the owner said it had a rattle from the gearbox mainly in 3rd well to me it sounded like i had someone under the floor with a lump hammer so i drove the 180 miles useing just 3 gears!! With a few hours to think about it iám of the opinion the 3rd gear has some teeth missing as the rest seem no more noisy then i was expecting for a series landy, any one have any other ideas? :huh:

Regards Bob

Is it just in 3rd..??

A loud thumping can be a symptom of the rear crown wheel on the diff missing a tooth - does it jump out of 3rd too if you don't hold it in..? Gearbox rebuilds aren't too bad if you have patience...

Cheers

Peter
