Thank you guys for all the info! Got up under the car today and quickly turned into a sissy to remove anything because the torq converter is really close to the flexplate and I canít get a wrench up in there because of the space to try to tighten the bolts if loose so I gave up 1 man card put the dust shield back on and going to take it to a mechanic and explain where this knock is coming from.

Before removing the surp belt i got under the car on both sides and could definitely tell that the knock is coming from the back side of the motor somewhere. I can hear it just as equally on the driver side too.

Canít tell which side itís coming from. Iíll need to start with a stethoscope and pull the surp belt like others suggested.

Ed, i was telling someone the same thing!! Sounds like the headers or something banging against something but it only does it when the engine start to warm up. I'll pull the belts and see how it goes.

I went ahead and did that last night. Sounds exactly like a water pump woble or bearing going out.

So i came across some youtube videos regarding water pump knocking due to bearings going bad and the knock that it makes is exactly like the knock i'm having which give me hope.

Iíve posted a few things this week because I have a few issues to this new to me 68 SS clone. After the engine warms up there is a faint knock and I cannot tell where it is coming from being the top end or bottom end. Almost sounds like something is knocking against something somewhere. I was going to post the video on YouTube but Iíve found that the resources on this forum are more valuable and I respect the responses from people that know way more than me about these 1st gens and engines. If anyone wants. I can e-mail this video to someone.

Got help over here and turns out that i didn't have the alt belt tight enough and the dang bracket had to be adjusted just enough to NOT hit the fan blades. This is something that i will never miss next time for sure. Thanks for the help guys!! Sorry to waste your time

also still the alt blades aren't spinning and i think they should be right? To stop the screetch, i loosened the bolt that hold the alt in place and lowered it just a little and then re-tightened it. Fired it up and sounds now like the alt belt or surp belt is loose.

I was able to adjust the top alt bracket and stop the crazy screetch but now sounds like the surp belt is loose type of sound. Not sure if it's the alt belt or surp belt. None of this happened until i had a bright idea to remove the top chrome bracket to clean off some surface rust today.
