I have a 2001 rubi, tore down last winter fixed the hondamatic, replaced the oil pump, after it warms up I hear a grinding/slipping noise when I'm

A. climbing ditches,
B. gun it from a dead stop
C. power brake (hold down all brakes a hit the gas).

I was looking for some input assuming that my oil pressure and oil level is good.

Thanks


* one other thought if I'm power braking and still hear the nosie does that rule out the hondamatic the noise actually sounds like its coming from the front output shaft.

I don't know much about the Hondamatic, but since you say the noise sounds like it's coming from the front output shaft, maybe the splines are stripped on your front driveshaft.

splines

I don't think it's the splines because i can powerbrake the machine to intentionally not let the front shaft rotate and still get the noise, it runs great until it gets warmed up.

it possiblely could be originating from the subtransmission but I'm not sure.

That's what I thought too. Either that or the splines on the output shaft may be stripped. That would let the output shaft turn while the driveshaft remained stationary.

Is this the clutch I'm hearing ?
I doubt if it's the clutch. I've never heard a clutch make any noises before. The Rubicon only has the centrifugal clutch, along with the Hondamatic unit.
