[Healeys] Rear end noise

I suppose the diffs were set up per the manual? I forget what that involves, but it’s all in the manual. And you’ve all got manuals?
I looked around for ages and eventually found a diff from an automatic Westminster. I took it to a gears/diff place and they checked and adjusted the so-called “run-out” with some clever wotsit and it’s not made a noise since. Worth thinking about...at least for anyone who hasn’t put the 3:54 in yet?? It’s not so hard to do....you take the whole diff to the workshop. (Having extracted it first!)

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.

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
