Yeah, you really lucked out on that one. I know the sound. Happened to me on a 1949 plymouth. The pressure plate bolts were loose on the flywheel and it sounded just like a rod or main bearing knock. Man, some stuff never changes. lol

TC is Torque Converter? Glad you got it resolved. Bill Buttermore, the 49 Plymouth was a tank.

This may sound like a dumb question....I hope it isn't.

Do you hear it when it is in park and your car is idling there? And can hear it the loudest when you are standing next to the drivers door and put your head sorta down by the front tire?

I've seen people fooled by the harmonic balancer/dampener, too. Sounds like rod knock at first, then it gets worse and you think the whole motor is coming apart. Kinda like what you'd imagine a broken balance shaft sounding like.
