It sounds like the "special bearing" is bad or not shimmed properly.
Allowing the shaft to move back and forth. That changes the pinion depth
which causes howling. Maybe it is moving enough for gears to be grinding
on each other. Maybe you knocked spring off double lip seal when
installing. That little guy loves to travel and can make differential
bearings sing. If this is a recent Hugh rebuild call Hugh. A similiar
situation happened on another trans and Hugh stood behind it and was
willing to make right. Hey John maybe you have a bad rotor! Later Dave

I had Bill Syx do the install, so I cannot speak for the spring, but
he is experienced and I am sure he took great care with the
installation.

I've found a system for checking the oil level and the absence of water in
both the road and water gearboxes. I've cut a 9" by 1/4" wooden dowel, made
sure both gearboxes were correctly filled, then measured the height of the
oil in both using the dowel as a dipstick through the vent holes and marked
the dowel. I found the relative height from the bottom of both gearboxes to
the oil level is identical. This method allows easy and frequent checks of
both gearboxes without having to take out the level-screws and often add oil
until it runs out. It also allows the inspection for water as you look at
the oil from the bottom to the top. I believe there is no reason to change
the oil at the end of each boating season since with no water in the oil, it
will easily last for 50,000 miles.
