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.

1985 Ford Escort RS Turbo Series 1 1.8
2003 RenaultSport Clio 172 Cup(ish)

Ensure you have fitted the original oem  diff mount rubbers instslled - remove any new ones that all the suppliers sell which  are all too hard a compound and transmit more noise into body and cabin. This is why I always buy up the "worthless" used old rubber bits at the spares shows for peanuts

Particularly badly specced are the gearbox mount rubbers - when I fitted new I immediately could hear the gearbox whining in the lower gears and there was more exhaust buzz coming into the cabin -  the stag lost its refinement  - luckily I kept the old mounts and refitted them

Even worse are the poly bush mounts

a car trader i knew in the 70s, used to swear by banana skins
just crammed as many as he could into the casing it did work believe it or not for about 1000miles by which time the warranty had run out.
