Since aftermarket crowns and pinions are no good for the Stag. Is there anything I can have done to my diff to reduce the whine like have shims added or something?

Out of interest what have you heard bad about the aftermarket gears. With the whine dont forget that it could just be a worn bearing that needs replacing...

Is it the CWP that whines? might be bearings.

Have a look here for some ideas.


GT6 MK2, 1970 yellow. Off road waiting refurb/restoration/modification.
Triumph 2000 MK1 1968, being recommissioned after being in storage since 1973.
Locost 1300 x/flow. (STILL being built).
Spitfire x2 rolling chassis.
Peugeot 406 V6 Saloon. sorned.
Mondeo ST24
Mondeo V6 Estate Daily hack and mobile dog kennel.
Kawasaki 550's x2 1xGT 1xZ + Z650 Rolling chassis.

Too many projects not enough time money.

Many moons ago someone mentioned Molyslip. If your diff is off the car I would put 2 or 3 tubes in working it round the gears by turning the flanges and nice new oil.

One does not have to know how a thing works, to know that it is not working right
