    Ok, so I set my gears up in my 14 bolt about 1.5 years ago (December of 2002) and never had a problem with them. I rencent changed my fluid about a month ago and there were no problems. Starting about 3 weeks ago I started getting a slight whine above 50 mph and a really bad whine on deceleration at any speed. I pulled the cover day before yesterday again and 90% of the teeth had a chip in the drive side in the area circled in red below:

    That is a picture from when I set them up so you can see the pattern. I didn't get a pic of the chips but they are about 3/16" wide and 1/32" or so deep on almost every tooth. The oil was good and the only thing stuck to the magnet was the little pieces of tooth. The backlash is still right at .007" and everything is tight. Pinion teeth are fine.

    Since I don't own a tape recorder I duct taped my video camera under the truck and went for a ride so you can hear the noise and the conditions thats cause it:

    Anyway, any ideas? I know I'm going to need a new gearset now but what the heck could cause this all the sudden?

    Yep, I've never seen it before... Oh well, I'm towing it to blazerfest since I know this will die on the highway trip there so I guess I'll try my hardest to blow a 14 bolt R/P in the tank trap /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    1. What are you going to tow it with?
    2. Does this mean the rolling machine shop that I heard about isn't coming?
    3. I'll be watchin' the tank!

    Video camera , duct taped under truck /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif
    BTW looks like lots of room to work under there , do you think it might be your pinion or carrier bearings?

    So now for the truth , did you suck in one of your friends to go for a ride under your truck /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Are you running a locker or posi? After the noise started did you try changing the oil again, maybe not compatable with a locker or limited slip? That wouldn't explain the chipped teeth though..i guess i'm not much help, but duct tapping your camera under the truck is damn funny. i mean that in a good way. you should do that at your next wheeling trip then you can edit it in with someone else's footage for an awsome tape.
