TD, was the PTO and rotary cutter going while the noise was being made? If so, you might have a slipping PTO clutch/brake. There have been a few of these with problems. Otherwise, I'd stick with trying to isolate it to the transmission by changing to all speed ranges and see what happens. It definitely could be heat related. If so, it will be a pain at the dealer's too because they won't want to operate it until everything gets as hot as it did after 4 hours of mowing. If you can duplicate the noise or isolate it, it will sure help the service guys if that's what it comes to.
