Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Got this whine not as persistent as AK but annoying.Think it's my transfer box or might be a diff. I get it mostly about 60mph. not to loud but enough to know it is there.
    It's done 111,000 with fairly reg oil changes. any advice on addatives, Don't think we are talking changing unit yet.
  2. Squash some Bannanas into diff and sell it to some dewey eyed prick who think Landrovers are cool!

    Sorry more sensible answer will be along shortly.

    **** off and die in a fire choking on a chicken bone.

    Sorry. Where were we?

    Is the whine only there with power on? Like when you are pulling away, but the noise dies off when you are freewheeling? I assume you have checked the levels in your gearbox and transfer box, yes?
  8. Is it only in top gear at 60? Is there any other box noises at other speeds?

    Bearing starting to shit itself in top?
  9. Landrover Wine? Mine's a Merlot! Thanks for asking! ;o)
  10. Could be a wheel bearing mate? Diff would be a constant whine but louder at speed afaik
