Whining Noise at Low Speed

This has been bothering me since I got the truck and do not know if this is normal.

Every time I move the vehicle from a stop, I can hear whining. After the vehicle gets up to speed, the whining goes away. I cannot say exactly the speed, my speedo is not that great.

At first I thought that the T-Case and Tranny fluids were low. I flushed them both and topped them up... did not go away.

Any ideas? Normal?

I've never had a problem with deer while driving my 88. Must be some of those normal drive train sounds.

Deer as in those tasty 4 legged animals that like to wander across roads at dusk. They tend to run away from my 88, perhaps due to high pitched sounds that are 'normal'.

The whining is probably just attributed to it missing its old owner, or the result of it being secluded from other Rovers. Very common issue associated with misuse of a great truck.

It's the tranny, probably a bronze bushing or slipped split ring that keeps the mainshaft gears tight. Mine did the same thing and was fixed after a quick rebuild.

Nice. Now I have to rebuild the tranny.

Where did you buy the kit from?

Didn't buy a kit, bought a "new" tranny! Once I got my old one out I saw what the issue was. Either way, you can get most parts for those those trannys and they are the easiest ones to rebuild in my experience.

In a Series if you can get all the gears and it does not jump out of gear going downhill the noise is just a Series being a Series in my opinion. On my 67 2A Wagon the squirrel cage drowns out any gear noise anyway.

A healthy Series tranny should not whine
