At the time that the weight was added to the tail shaft of the transmissions, the normal speed limit was 55 in the US. At a constant 55 the shifter of the TR4 would "buzz". This resulted in a lot of complaints. The solution was to hang a weight from the Transmission. This changed the RPM of the harmonics from 55 to another spot. It was still there but not in a spot where one drove at a constant speed. There was a engineering bullention issued on it. Was retrofitted at the dealer if the customer complained.
