Series Tranny Question

'58 Series I 4 speed. Only whilst in 2nd gear I get a nasty whine from the tranny when I let off the gas. It sounds and operates fine when under load and in the other gears. Anyone have any ideas? Sadly the tranny was nearly bone dry when I picked the truck up so I assume it's a bearing.

drain the oil and see if there is any metal swarf or brass in the oil. The bushings the gears ride on are brass and could certainly be worn. Good news is that the series trans is dirt simple and easy to rebuild.
