clutch problems

hey folks,
yesterday i was driving normally and when i took off from a red light all of the sudden i heard the loudest clutch chatter, at first i thought it was a u joint but it also makes the noise when still and revving. The chatter is really bad from 1200 to 2000 rpms, increasing with speed, above that rpm range its not really noticeable. The chatter is there with the clutch both engaged and disengaged.
I replaced the clutch, tob, pilot bearing 28k miles ago. Do any of you guys know what could be causing this noise??? Thanks.

If its there with the clutch engaged and disengaged... might be a rod bearing. You should be able to shut a chattery clutch up by pushing the pedal down.

It sounds like it is directly coming from the clutch tho, when i revved the car with the hood open you could barely hear it from the engine, as soon as you get under the car near the transmission it is really loud. There are also no driveablility issues it shifts and drives completely normal. also when in the car windows up it comes directly from under the shifter.

Its just very weird that there is no change with pushing the clutch pedal in or out. Clutch pedal down=clutch and TOB stop moving and Pilot starts moving. Clutch pedal up=Pilot stops moving and TOB spins and clutch should really only chatter during engagement. Something definitely could have come loose in there. If its coming directly from the bell... time to drop the trans... which sucks with longtubes...

Yea i am going to put the car on jacks and get under it while someone revs it just to make 100% sure that is it coming from the bell housing. I looked at a couple videos of the 4.6 with spun bearings and it does sound similar. If the engine is due for a rebuild i will probably just drop a 4v in it.

Lol I bought a 2V with spun bearing and I'm putting in a 4V. Or just drop in a low mileage PI motor out of a Vic/Marquis/Towncar and keep on rolling. What I was GOING to do until I found a few really good 4V deals locally.
