It howls in all gears, and changes pitch with speed.  Sometimes it will
howl, other times it just makes a low, soft, sickening dry bearing noise.

I have not checked the fluid level yet, although the mechanic I took it to
said there was no evidence of any transmission leaks.

They also listened with a car stethescope (sp?), and it's not the propeller
shaft bearing (bummer) 

I'm going to check the fluid tonite.

BTW - German parts & restoration has a Sachs clutch kit for the 4000q for
149!!!!  Bargin Central!
