I tried a diffrent spur gear, still no difference. I've tried the gear mesh tight, I've tried the gear mesh loose.

No matter what I do, it still sounds like a coffee grinder!

Looking for suggestions.

Thanks in advance.
Are you using a aluminum pinion? I'm running harden steel TLR pinions. My buggy is quiet.
