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.

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.

IIRC Wards make a CW&P set which does not whine.  Cheap it is not however.

Ex Stag TV8, Dolly Sprint and Spitfire 1500 owned.

Now with the following:
1985 Ford Escort RS Turbo Series 1 1.8
2003 RenaultSport Clio 172 Cup(ish)
