Default tranny noise

in the 7+ years i've had my EK, i've been thru 13 transmissions. Mostly because when one would go, (initially because i was insisting on using solid hub 4 puck ACT back in the day), i would just put in whatever someone had that didn't grind....many times the trans would be one it's last legs. I've blown up diffs, killed countless bearings and synchros while using these old transmissions...

Anyway, the one i have now i installed last winter and for several months it has been making noise with the pedal out. If i press it in, it goes away completely. My question is, how do i tell the difference between a phucked mainshaft/ input shaft bearing vs. a beat throwout bearing? i was always under the impression that if the noise went away immed after pressing the clutch in, it was TO, but if it went away a second or two after, it was mainshaft....but after thinking about it, i dunno. im tired and fighting a slight cold.

I too would like to know about this because I have the same problem. The car runs and drives good. Does your tranny quiet down very slightly when engine warmed up?? I was thinking that it was the synchro that was screwed.

i'd say it doesn't quiet down at all. i while back, i put good ol' lucas oil stabilizer in there and it didn't get less loud AT ALL! truthfully, i've never had that stuff NOT make a noise better, so that is what makes me think its the TO bearing, since its outside the gearbox and seperate from the oils...

I too thought it was the bearing but I changed it at home but still the same problem. My noise is coming from within the tranny. I was thinking about just changing it out for an ex/si instead of thinking about it too much.

The TO bearing isn't much of a big deal. I drove my Sol with a worn out TO bearing for over a year with no problems.

does it make the noise when you're rolling with the clutch IN? Mine did that too and it was definitely the ISB.

I've never had a quiet tranny, NEVER.

With tranny in "N" car just sitting there with e-brake on, ALL gears are moving, bearings making noise.

How much noise will a bearing/gear make moving at 8-16k shaft rpms?

Best tranny I ever built (other than mine ) has a whine in second LOUDER that AKSC.......

Scary to say this, but if it shifts without issues, let it WHINE!
