Default noisy m5od

i have a m5od 4*2 it shits perfect no noise and goes right into gear but in all gears while im driving theres a sound coming from the transmission its like a slight grinding scratching kind of noise. Its from a scrap yard and i have no clue how many miles are on it when i drained it there where some shavings on the magnet and some in the fluid that poured out that the magnet didnt catch but no real big chucks that i could see and it all looked silver. I was wondering if the m5od-R1 is just a noisy transmission or if i picked a bad apple

Default Re: noisy m5od

deff a bad apple, i had the same problem and needed a whole new bearing kit that ran 800$ total for the rebuild. The guy told me i had about 50 miles before the main bearing would have exploded in the tranny and made it un-rebulidable.
