When I accelerate I have started to get a vibration so I'm thinking the torque converter this started about 3 weeks ago. However now once up to speed say 50 mph all is fine if I accelerate slowly no vibrations if I accelerate hard without the box changing down I have a vibration. But if I take my foot off the accelerator I get a vibration like driving over a cobbled road, this continues until I slow to about 30 mph then all is fine.
My Mechanic who looks after it for me first thought the torque converter as I did but now we are both at a loss.
Any help would be most appreciated.

Had a look under at the weekend a little movement in the prop shaft everything else seems fine. Looks like it'll have to go up on a ramp for a proper investigation.

Put it in low range, foot on brake and alternate from dive to reverse, if you get a clunk or a bump there is wear somewhere on the drive line, possibly a U.J. on a prop shaft.
TC usually rumble in the 27-35 mph range while accelerating, not decelerating, are your wheel nuts tight It can when others can't,
It will when others won't,
It goes where others don't.
