Incredibly annoying rattle.

okay, I'm literally losing my mind trying to find this noise. it sounds like an oscillating fan that has a blade that hits the guard around it. it all started after i swapped the engine for a one with better compression. i have replaced the transmission, and now today i replaced the clutch. the noise sounds as if it is coming from the bell housing and can be heard when i give gas in neutral and when i am in all 5 gears under load. it is most noticeable when going up a hill or topping off a gear. i don't know where to go now. could it be motor/trans mounts? i don't have a fan shroud so its no that. any ideas are welcome because in out of them.

Is the exhaust bracket inserted in the rubber bushing on the transmission torque plate?

There is a bracket kind if a round arm off the cat TGIF goes into a rubber isolated right hand side of the Tcase. How about the cat heat shield on the tub side?? Is it loose???

Heat shield isn't loose. Do you mean the rubber in the transmission to skip plate mount?

There is a trans mount and a torque arm mount. On the passenger side they originally had a mount for a rubber isolator that went to the CAT. Mine is gone.

yes torque arm is there and i tightened the **** out of it. but the rubber bushings are shot and the trans mount rubber is cracked all the way through as well. i suppose i should replace them. how could this be contributing to the noise?its also on the opposite side as the CAT. there is a round piece of rubber that is part of the trans mount assembly that lines up with an arm coming off the CAT but i thought the arm was a breather that went to the intake to dilute the exhaust
