Ticking from bellhousing????

hey my 87 yj 4.2 5 speed just developed a ticking noise recently. under loads 1st - 3rd gear it gets faster and louder and at idle i got out and it sounded like it was coming from the bellhousing i just put in a new clutch in 5000 miles ago. as soon as i hit 4th gear it goes away any ideas of what it could be also im having a terrible belt squeaking and replaced both belts could this possibly be a harmonic balancer too? id also like to note that ive been putting a lot of stress on the flywheel because it got cold out and my carb needed a rebuild so ive been really cranking on it the past month trying to get it to start in the cold any ideas?

I dont think it could be throughout bearing because the clutch is fully disengaging and engaging and this throughout bearing is actually hydrolic so its like a piston and the piston while pop out and then ur screwed and wouldnt be able to move but i disregarded the clutch because the noise happens when u r in gear with the clutch engaged

Yes mine is the same. But the actual bearings in the throw out will click if they are bad. I've had one lock up and the slave part of it still be good

The throw out usually sits against the fingers of the pressure plate when the clutch is engage and foot off the pedal. When you step on the pedal it puts more pressure on the bearing and the noise will go away

I had a bolt come out and it did similar things. Pulled the transmission out and there it sat in the bottom of the bellhousing. Worth looking at!

Another vote for the Throw out bearing. Mine is doing the same thing. Hopefully it makes it until spring. I dont wanna drop the trans in the snow
