worn tranferbox or gearbox ?


Recommended Posts

hi i have posted a topic on a miss fire under load . somebody asked me if it was in any particular gear . anyway it acured to me that it wasnt a missfire it may be the gearbox or transferbox . i am getting a rumble/judder in low revs in 4th and 5th geari looked under and i have oil all over the transfer box but the gearbox is dry. there is a little bit on the handbrake drum im not sure whether thats running back though can anybody tell me if its fixable or do i need a recon transfer box or do you think it may be the gear box. the gear box changes well and smooth and hi and low work well on the transfer box. any advise or help would be great .

If it sounds like a low pitch vibration/rubble and only occurs under heavy throttle at low revs, mine does the same. I do not know why it happens but I am sure someone on here can tell us. I just find that if I accelerate more gently and don't floor the accelerator it doesn't happen.

I've had my Landy for over a year and it has done it since I bought it. Because I know how to prevent it, it never (or very very rarely) happens. I have done about 20,000 miles and have no ill effects from it (touch wood).

I would try removing front and rear propshaft in turn and drive with transfer box diff lock locked and see if the vibration goes away.

Vibration particularly when accelerating but disappearing on the over run is often worn propshaft UJs.

Also given that your transfer box has oil on the outside, check the level on the inside!

Seals for the output flanges are easy to fix, input seal change means separating from main box - transfer can remain in vehicle if moved back on long studs to change the input seal. There is a thread on here on how to do that.
