:shifty: THE GEARBOX!

Any thoughts on this-

My gearbox (standard Series III 4-speed, later 'C' type) has started making a low drone/growl/whine noise in 3rd and 4th gears. It is particularly noticeable under load (accelerating, going up hills), is quieter on the flat or at a steady speed and practically disappears when coasting downhill. There is no noise in 1st and 2nd, and the noise disappears above about 45 mph.

It seems to be that I've got a faulty bearing somewhere, but which one?

This is not a good time for this to happen :mad:. I spent all of Monday changing every drop of oil in the engine/gearboxes and axles, greasing all the UJs and flushing out the brakes and hydraulics after I lent the SIII to someone to do some light on-road towing, and it came back with mud splattered up to the roof :shifty: Apparently they decided to take a 'short cut' and it ended up stuck in a pond over its wheel rims for an hour.

Anyway, ranting over- any help appreciated as ever.
