Hi, it seems if your clutch has worn out, if it slips and smells of carbon, it will get worst. the inner and outer clutch pad seems to be worn. it could be it needs to be adjusted or one of the clutch pressure springs have broken. gerry

Find controls for engaging the power take off without grinding gears


Check the oil levels in the gear boxes. Do you have to have it in neutral? Clutch need adjusted?

Transmission ?


My first guess is that the gears are engaging, but if it's the original 12 year old clutch, it might not be grabbing.
Pull primary cover, put into first and try to pull forward while someone is watching clutch to see if it's locking up ok.

the shift linkage may need to be adjusted a bit or the shift forks and engaged gears for 4th and 5th may have worn enough that they need to be inspected and fixed.

If the clutch is bad it would make the same noise in every gear, because the clutch does always the same engage and disengage the trans and its different gears. So if there is a noise in a specific gear the problem is the trans-axle ( if the noise is coming from the trans axle.)

Slight grinding noise in 3rd gear pops out now wont engage ANY gear clutch feels normal shifter feels normal , 190,000 miles was about to need cluch still the original


your teansmission is going to be overhauled. it sounds like the synchros are going bad. the shifter has forks that move the gears. sometimes the forks wear out and it can cause the gears to wear out because the gears are not going into like they are suppose to. leave comment..

The clutch needs an adjustment. What's happening is the clutch isn't completely engaging while you shift, causing the grinding. Once properly adjusted, the grinding will disappear.

No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.
