Loud = gear chatter when running down the highway. Cheeseman's original Marlin did (does?) it too. Not a hum, not a growl, an intermittant chick-chick-chick-chick kind of sound that goes from louder to softer when running down the highway.

Hmmm. This sounds bad.

I'll have to look into that a bit more.

Is there any way to get rid of it? As in, you haven't done since you'd have to yank it out, but I could do before it goes in?

And how loud are we talking. Enough to be covered by radio, or really annoying.

Well, we'll see when it gets here I guess. Looks like it was too good to be true. Ah well.

leines drives his everywhere, if it was more than just a "turn up the radio" problem it would've gone by now. I wouldn't sweat it, I would install it and go have fun you'll be just fine.

I got a transfer case from Marlin with a 4.7 in it that did that. BAD. He replaced it. He told me later that the gear itself had a minor ding from shipping, and that was the cause. He dressed it with a diamond file, and it was good as new - in fact, he resold it as new, which it really was.
I just "QA'd" it for him.


That is exactly the kind of sound it made, only mine was REALLY bad. It was a very minor ding. You might take yours apart sometime Rudy.

However, I am noticing my R151 is really loud too, made worse by the fact that my shift tunnel cover is not anywhere close to sealed since the body lift. I asked Marlin about that, and he said the gears in the 151 are so big and heavy (first gear in particular) that there is just no way to make it quiet, nor shift like a sports car. The price you pay for toughness. I know you run a 151 also, Rudy, so it may in fact be the 151.

I aim to 'fix' mine by making a well-sealed shift tunnel cover. My original design has some bugs anyway. Hard to remove really. The shifter needs to be remade to clear everything a bit better, just gonna use some 1/2" rod or something and make it snaky.

No it ain't. It's all good.

Good.

This makes me mucho happy.

Now, I need to focus on the wiring. Gotta keep reminding myself, "One project at a time".

LOL

Good luck with that one project at a time thing... I've never been successful at it.

Gear clatter?

Man, take a ride with me in the 40 and listen to every squeek, rattle and clang from windows, seals, latches, everything!

A little click might make for nice company on long trips.

Sounds like a great score Isaac!

Got it today.

However, too sick to do anything except open the box, and look inside.

Ugh.
