Default Noisy Gear Box

New to my 88 HB, but loving it.
Recently I've been hearing a sound I'm unfamiliar with coming from the Gear Box. Could this be a result of low fluid or something more expensive?

Thanks for any help i can get on this

Manual transmission? Most likely the throw out bearing is going out.

Whether you do it yourself or send it out, replace the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, and rear main seals on the engine together.

If you pay a shop, most of their cost is going to be from the labor because it will take them about 6 hours to pull and reinstall the transmission. The cost of those other parts is going to be minor next to the labor, and you'd hate for the next item to go out a few thousand miles later.

That's a little lower than the rate around here.

I would check your carrier bearing on your drive shaft.

Thanks for the input, ***update*** after finding out my throw out bearing was bad I went ahead and replaced the clutch, pressure plate and the rear main seal... in the process found that my transmission was pretty worn out... all in all paid about $800 for everything including labor...
In my opinion not a bad deal... now, drives like a brand new truck.

For all that and they did the transmission is a great deal. I just spent 1k on a new clutch for my GT.
