How much oil (90wt) do you have in the TC?

Suggest you get underneath and try to put some in until it overflows. Or better drain what's in there and put new MTF 90wt in

So I have to put oil in the TC. Is there a plug or something to put more oil in? I have never messed with TC.

Forget it...I think I know how to access it. I will report back soon. Hopefully that's the solution. In the meantime if there are any other things for me to trouble shoot please send it.

The old CV is probably got tossed out. I saw it and the part that holds the bearings was broken into pieces. I know the half shaft had to be replaced because it was chewed up a bit and when the old stub axle was put back on it was slightly bent. I had to replace that too. All of the parts are new. I have swivel grease and I am heading out to purchase 90 wt gear oil then putting it in.

When I put the grease and oil in there will the noise immediately disappear?

well - that is a constant source of whine - attributed to many things. There are two plugs, facing the rear of the truck - a 1/2" ratchet fits in. Or the drain plug may be the male square type? The top one of course is to fill it.

Very easy to drain, very easy to fill.

what do you think about the ub being over-tightened? I'm sure they used a gun rather than a box wrench. Would that have an impact?

Thanks Jonesy I am heading to the D-90 now.

I just drained the rear, added gear oil, added one-shot grease to the swivel. Both areas had fluid/grease when I started to drain it. No change the noise is there. Additionally, I learned the "whirring" noise continues after coming off the gas pedal. As I was going downhill and picking up speed while coasting the noise was there. The noise was also there when backing up fast! The noise increased somewhate when making left turns(driver's side on the inside of the turn--that's the side that had the CV joint blown). People outside watching my drive around a parking lot could hear the noise clearly as I moved around so it's pretty noticeable.

I have a video http://youtu.be/BMcxDnyyJKE turn up the volume and you can hear the noise.

I am wondering if they tightened something down too much when refitting the stub/half axle. Could there be an issue further into the axle? In the pinion/pumpkin?

If the hub nut was overtightened that would cause problems....jack up ea wheel and see if it spins easily by hand...if not back them off.

Also when you said drained the rear one - are you talking about diff? - I was referring to the Transfer Case.

Yes, I was going to do both then I got fixated on the diff. I will try the wheel test and do the TC later tonight or tomorrow.

Jonesy wins again!! The rear was almost dry. My mechanic/friend was so consumed with getting the axle back together the fluids were overlooked. After I put the gear oil in the diffs at night, I returned in the morning and the "whirring" noise was completely gone. I then drained and filled up the TC once my new washers arrived from RN. So far, so good! Thanks so much to all who took a moment to share your thoughts. Until the next break down....

May I humbly suggest that you find someone who knows how to work on these vehicles?
Seems that nobody you have been dealing with even does so much as test drive after repairs.
I can't imagine what kind of coin you've been dumping down the land rover black hole, but at some point you must get fed up.

May I humbly suggest that you AT MINIMUM find a professional mechanic, better yet a professional Land Rover mechanic who is specialized in Defenders, to work on your truck, someone who won't forget to refill fluids after taking them out, and remember to re-install all parts that he removes?

I'm sorry if I'm sounding too harsh or sarcastic, but you should have been running in the opposite direction after your 1st experience with this hack, and not coming back to him.
