Started as a light tick that grew louder
Sound like its coming from torque converter/pump area
Can hear a solid click knock between the two.
When I start in the morning its ticks and goes away a little at higher rpms may go away when driving but stick it in park tick tick tick
But I noticed sometimes it would stop when the car rolled back until it sat on the locking pin then it stopped
Wierdly I would hear it as it warmed up it may or may not go away. Another weird think it would tick in park neutral I stick it I. Gear and it stops then starts again after a few seconds then picks up speed and keeps with the rpm.
Yesterday tired to find a loose anything maybe hitting the fame or something
Found the metal trans lines were tapping the exhaust fixed it but was not the issue
I have already pulled the inspection plate and checked the flexplate bolts and torque converter bolts
Front of trans pump had oil seepage (worn out th200/still shifts great despite having broken clutch fibers)
Started after tinkering and still was present let it warm up and then gave up .
Started today in the morning and after 10 seconds shit was knocking loudly like something was. Hitting metal so shit her off and said some choice words.
Looking to yank the trans to remove and thoroughly inspect flexplate and have the old engine to take stuff off if needed
Also would it be ok to start the engine in the engine bay with transmission removed/decoupled
Please any advice
First plan of attack
Inspect trans and flexplate looking for shiny metal from rubbing/ hitting
*ok?* start engine with teans disconnected to isolate noise
I heard can be
Crank hitting pan (I have aftermarket chrome pan on/never made noise when installed and ran previously)
Loose torque converter bolts/flexplate
Please help with this crate 350 before it grenades
