Hi there, Have a question if anyone has some ideas. I know (now I know) there was no or little oil in the rear differential, Son told me there was a noise in 1st gear. I took it out for a drive (with oil now) and there was a different sound to the speeding up but when I let off the gas there is a clinking sound. Speed up and it goes away until you let off the gas again. I didn't speed it up much or drive it long.

Your best bet is to remove the cover and take a look at the gears. Its kinda hard to tell you whats going on by the noise description.

Its an easy job, just messy, so be prepared.

If all checks out, just rtv the cover back on, no gaskets needed. Just make 100% sure that all gear oil residue has been cleaned off of both surfaces before rtv'ing the cover.
