I have just put a bearing kit through the the gearbox of my 94 Coilcab TD42 but I am still experiencing a similar noise. Originally I was eperiencing a problem with a noisy bearing when in neutral. If I depressed the clutch it disapeared. The input shaft bearing was flogged and the gearbox reconditioners reckon there was minimal wear on the shafts. They have advised me that the reckon the noise is coming from the Anti-Rattle Plate, but couldn't replace as there were none available, would have to be on back order. Is this worth worrying about or should I let it go and get used to it?

Anti-Rattle Plate is the Sub Gear that is held in place on the input shaft by a snap ring.

Don't worry about it, they all do it some more than others.
It's gear chatter not bearing noise,it also depends how good your clutch is.

This is one of the reasons they went to a dual mass flywheel on the 3.0l to eliminate this type of noise.

Mine used to do it all the time. Scared the bejeezus outta me when I first heard it. I just banged the clutch pedal with my foot, quickly and firmly ( that's two feet, ones called "Quickly", the other's called "Firmly") and the noise used to disappear.

Went on like that fer years. Even the new owner of the truck does it.
