[Healeys] Rear end noise

My Lempert set is noisy, too, and I've heard from others that have noisy gears. Some gearsets--maybe it's certain ratios?--are noisy. My dad used to be a Ford service rep, and he said the early Mustangs all had noisy rear ends.
Redline now has a 75W-110 diff oil, which they claim might help cut the noise, without the thickness of a 140. I'm going to give it a try.

Subject: [Healeys] Rear end noise
I had the Lempert gear set installed in my 1966 BJ8 this year put about 2000 miles on it.
I have a pretty loud hum at about 35-45 mph………the hum only occurs when accelerating…..when you let off it goes away.
Can someone tell me what is causing it ? can the new gears be readjusted if that’s the problem?
Thanks in advance
