OD noise


Recommended Posts



Went for a spin in my Mk2 Vit this afternoon. Strange noise when engaging OD. I've noticed it before and its difficult to describe - sounds like a 'fluttering' or the sound paper makes when you tear it! Intermittent, tending to come on under acceleration though. I'm guessing electrical? Any ideas please. Thanks.

the OD does have a series of bearing internally , the thrust race could give a whine but fluttering noises dosnt sound like any mechanical problem


if the anulus planets are all out of line and were not fitted or 'timed' on a repair then than can set up a vibration noise as the load is runthro only 1 of the 3 gears inside.   not fluttering though
