Perhaps the output damper shaft is bent. Sorry to hear you are still having problems. At least you like the gear change!Well gents - I am pressing hard to get this transmission done, but ran into issues on the first run.
The dog noise is gone, but now it sounds like a bearing or oiling issue. It increases as RPM goes up and only when in gear so it has to do with shafts spinning. Right now it's looking like the tranny is coming out of the YXZ tonight and I'll split the case tonight/tomorrow and see what parts are needed and what I can do.
I did like the '19 gearing though for the brief time I tested it - first was lower for sure and second through the rest felt about spot on. Just need to get rid of my transmission goblins..
I'd say - unless there is a miracle this week, I'll not be making it
