CJ/(all) - Old transmissions and noise
Well, the T98 is in and working just fine. However, I can't help but notice that even though this is a fresh rebuild, the thing is a heck of a lot noisier than my grindy old T150 ever was. I chalked this up to the fact that it's a nearly 40-year-old transmission. However, I recently read where bad input and output bearings can cause such noises and this, of course, caused me to worry.
To characterize the noise, it's a noticeable whine when there's load on the transmission at 30mph+ in 3rd and 4th gear (I guess the only two gears capable of 30mph+ anyway). the whine ceases when coasting.
