That sounds odd (no pun intended.) You sure it's the laughing monkey?

I thought for sure that was the issue. With the new opda installed, it does not make the noise at idle but upon accelerating it will.

Sorry to nitpick you, but you're certain it's the same sound heard in the two videos in the first videos in this thread?! Unheard of with a brand new unit as far as I know, but not impossible, I suppose.

Verify that it's the sane issue and I'm sure opinions will be forthcoming.

the shaft is binding? it needs grease/oil. Put a grease zerk on it and it'll stop.

I dont want to doubt you but have you checked the belts etc.....while anything is possible I am highly suspect of a new unit making any noise at all.

My bet would be you have a different issue...can you record it and host it on youtube for us?.....we can help you track it down

I've seen several new units for modification arrive with dry upper bushings. It's possible especially at start up when the unit is cool and the grease doesn't have the ability to permeate the bushing. This is why a lot of laughing monkey symptoms occur in the colder months. You need to find a way to lubricate it.

Ok I don't think it is laughing monkey. The sound is coming from where the engine and trans meet/back of the engine/front of trans. There is not any noise coming from the belt area.

While that doesn't sound good at all, it's definitely not the OPDA.

That is exactly the same sound mine is making. I'm glad I'm not the only one with this noise. Here is a video of mine.

cmecha,

Gotcha...I sent a PM.

BTW guys, I have just one set of beta parts left, assuming those of you that asked already follow though.
After these run for a bit, I'll see if the results of the retrofit are as I expect.
If all looks good, I'll try to get a count on how many more sets of parts I should get, and we'll fix this issue for good!!

Thanks for the responses and for stepping up to the plate to be beta testers...

Mike T.
