The transmission in my closed side lgt100 whines like a teenager. especially in reverse.

Seems a bit loud to me.

it has a fresh load of gear oil, and the old oil didn't look bad.

I think a lot of the transmissions whine to some extent. Especially depending on the speed traveling and how much you hear it depends on the other ambient noises like exhaust noise level.

 

I think most of it has to do with how the gears are cut in the transmission.

The gears are getting tired.  Old farm tractors are especially bad about it.  Straight cut gears are the worst from what I was told, don't know if that is true or not.

Yes, some are louder than others. As long as it isn't bearing noise, no biggie IMO

Yes, a lot of farm tractor restorers state that even thou the tractor is compleatly restored new gears are the only way to stop the whine.

I have several tractors, all sporting the same model tranny.

They all sound different. I use to worry about the noise they made, and

found that the more I thought about it, the worse it got.

If memory serves me correctly straight cut gears are noisier than helical cut gears.My 214 & 216 have the same tranny and each has a sound of their own.

I had a problem with the gearbox on my HB112 after I took it apart.  Took some videos of it.  Turned out I had something out of line when I put it back together.

I have really noticed it with old farm tractors. As long as they don't pop out I don't worry about it.

My LGT 165 is quite loud too. But the FF's, with the same setup aren't near as noisy.

You should drive one of Doug's (DH1) electric tractors.

The tranny noise is so noticeable, you'd swear it's going to blow up under your butt. :smilewink:

Besides the birds chirping, there's nothing else to hear.

I had a Allis Chalmers B, it had straight cut gears and it was the loudest thing you'd ever here. You had to have ear plugs just to run it!

I have that problem with my Jacobsens. I added Lucas oil oil stabilizer to the tranny and it helped a little noise wise but should help the gears last longer. It cost me like 10 bucks a quart at Advanced Auto Parts. I used around 25% oil stabilizer to save a little money but it says on the bottle that you can use up to 100%. I used the conventional type but they also have synthetic
