241HD noise when accelerating

When under 'load', in say 3rd, or 4th, the T/C 'grinds'. I've been told it's the 'chain', 'gear walk', no one seems to know for sure. So anyone here know what is causing this? T/C 'works' fine, just grinds when putting 'power' to it, NOT all the time. Thanks.

Are you trying to describe TC chain strech. Very common on 4WD left in 4WHD on solid surfaces.

2008 3500 stock QCLB dually Inferno red. Toys: Fuel injected Rampage, Road Grader, 1586 tractor, 60K genset, Honda ATV, and more. Back in business with a Hitachi EX270LC excavator. The dirt slinging has begun with 50+ acres to clear.

It's a 2000 diesel drw, 5sp, 4wd. I am (I believe), the 3rd owner, so no clue as to how it has been driven. So, the chain is the best place to look. Thanks.

Put in 4WD on a dirt parking lot. Accelerate and you will get a ratching shake that may scare your drawers off if the chain.
Do not run our trucks in 4WD on good traction surfaces.

241HD noise when accelerating

I recently had a similar noise after I rebuilt my transfer case a 241dhd. The chain streached out so bad and wore a hole in the bottom of the case so I rebuilt the case combining two transfer cases to make one good one. Well anyway upon rebuild I forgot one of the c-clips in the tailshaft housing and it would get a grinding noise under heavy load or during a shift. Needless to say I pulled it apart and the mainshaft was moving back and forth from the missing c-clip. The edges of the chain started to get chewed up quick. Luckily I didnt drive it that much like that.
