buzzing in first gear

So I went and got a rebuild kit for the crashy. All well except for the bearing retaier which after being shrunk onto the input shaft came up oversized.
Anyway, main problem is a buzzing from the box in first gear. Only at low speeds. Second and top are fine.

Problem solved. Ended up being the new first gear I put in didn't like the cluster gear that had a couple of chips in it and caused all the noise. Put the original first gear back in and quite as a mouse. Still jumps out of top gear which is frustaiting. New bearings, energizer springs, needle bearings. All linkages are adjusted but still pops out. GGGGGGRRRrrrr.

What a great way to learn about gearboxes. Can now get a gearbox out of an EJ in 18 minutes!
