Around the block this time, about a half mile.
Brakes are good.
Generator is good.
Oil pressure is good.
Water temperature is good.
Transmission is noisy in 1st, 2nd and 3rd, ok in 4th.
Trans oil level is ok.
I understand about 1st, straight cut gears.
This is my first experience with double helical gears.
Is that noise in 2nd and 3rd characteristic of double helical gears?
I would have thought not, as quietness was supposed to be a feature of helical gears over straight cut.
Or is it characteristic of 96,000 miles?
Thoughts from the more experienced?
