Hey guys.
105 1600 gt 1965
gearbox was rebuilt many years ago and all good. 15 yrs
cars has done low km since that time but taken for a lap every two weeks.
All of a sudden a few years ago ( car had a a long long long sit) after a run it developed a whine in 5th.
gets louder faster you go and not in any other gear.
on fast acceleration its there but at cruising in 5th its slight and maybe even on and off.
Would this be a dry bearing? ( non moly syncro box)
i changed oil last week just for upkeep- no change
cheers

One thing to check, are the shift boots well attached? Sometimes they can come adrift and let it noise you didn't hear before. Unlikely but worth checking.
So you're using GL1 if it's nonmoly? Did the oil get low before you changed it?

Thanks for reply
yes it is GL1 and oil never low. When oil was drained it was very clean as well. I will check boots but i doubt it. Very much only in 5th,
cheers
