Nosies from Box

Hey guys, Ive got a problem with my 5 speed in my EB. whenever I accelerate in third gear, it makes a whizzing sound. it seems like its coming from the gearbox. it only does it on acceleration, no other time. Sorry if its a bit vague but I would really appreciate any help. Thanks

Re: Nosies from Box

Possibly a front bearing, probably cluster. The front cluster bearing cops the most side load in third gear.

Re: Nosies from Box

Whatever it is, you will have to strip the box IMO, as it must be either a bearing or chipped/pitted 3rd gear.
