The best answer to this question I have ever seen is on http://www.ashcrofttransmissions.co.uk/category_8.html It reads: QUOTE The Freelander has 3 main drivetrain problems areas, the Intermediate Reduction Drive (IRD), Viscous Coupling (VC) and the rear differential. The reason for this is the front wheels on the Freelander are driven faster than the rear wheels so it handles well, like a front wheel drive car. To accommodate this ratio difference, a VC is fitted inline with the rear propshaft which thus is constantly slipping. On the earlier models this ratio difference was too great resulting in the viscous coupling working overtime and failing by siezing solid. When the viscous coupling is too tight or seized solid the front tyres are fighting the rears as the transmission is "winding up", initially this just wears the tyres (causing a "saw tooth" effect) but it also puts increased load on the IRD and rear diff as they are fighting each other causing rapid wear on both and ultimately failure of one or both. UNQUOTE The source of this comment is the Ashcroft Transmissions website.

Do you have to claim your earnings from an estate on your federal income taxes?

By earnings from an estate, you probably mean your inheritance. The answer is no. But if the estate itself has earnings (for example, it earns interest in its bank account or it sells property for a profit), you may have to pay federal income tax on your distributive share of the earnings. You also have to pay tax on what is known as "Income with Respect to Decedent" or IRD. An example of IRD would be a final paycheck given to a widow or interest paid on bonds after the death of the original owner. You may also have to pay taxes if you inherit a tax-prefered account such as an IRA or 401k. The distributions from such an account would be taxable.
