So about 2 months ago i replaced my leaky output seal and around 200 miles after i began to get a howling/humming coming at around 40+ mph. My question is, could this be a loose flange. I tried torqueing it down to 90 ft lbs but it just spun (even in gear) so could the noise be from it getting looser or is it my Out/in put bearing? thanks for any help

oh another detail is that when going at 40+ when clutch is in shifter in nuetral it makes noise, when its in gear/ clutch in it makes noise, in gear clutch out it makes noise. The only time i can get it to stop is when I put the shifter on the edge of going into gear.

It certainly sounds like the symptoms of a bad bearing for the transmission noise. However the output seal (is this the rear or the front output?) and loose flange may or may not be related since they are on the transfer. How many miles on the vehicle?

It was the rear flange, on the t-case, truck has 212k miles. But i think it has a relatively new rebuild on the trans. I've heard my type of t-case is pretty tuff, is there a way i can rule it out? I would rather buy just the trans rebuild then both. :)

I'm not much of an expert on those transmissions, and diagnosing these issues on the internet are a challenge at best. The folks at Marlin Crawler know the transmissions real well, but they'll be in the same boat if you cant get the truck to them to check out. Sorry I cant be of much more help. Hopefully somebody else has more experience with this issue.

I completely appreciate the help.

Long story short this all started to happen relativly close to me installing my 5.29's so with the knowledge a fellow transmission specialist he says between my bad rear pinion angle and the increased rotation speed (5.29's) i've wiggeled a bearing. Good news its a problem he says should go away with some adjusting of the rear end, some new fluid, and a CV DL. thanks again for the help ya'll.
