Just changed the packing on the shaft on my boat and while I was doing the test run, with the V-Drive and Tranny exposed, I heard a buzz or ZZZZZZZZ sound coming from that area. Initially, I thought it was from the packing that I had just changed, but after I took a closer look the sound was happening in neutral...without the shaft moving. So it has to be coming from the tranny.
I replaced V-Drive cover and backseat to see if I could hear it and I could barely hear anything. So I think this noise was always there...I just couldn't hear it with all the padding covering it in the back seat.
The sound gets higher pitched the more gas you give 'er.
Now, i went back and checked my records and I had tranny service done on my boat every spring except 09.(I am trying to save some money this year and am just learning how to do some of this stuff myself...)
I'm going to buy a pump and do a trans service soon. In the meantime, does anyone have any ideas about this noise? Hopefully, it will go away after the service.
