i just meant take the serp belt loose and start it, if the noise is gone its something that rotates with the belt. if not its in the engine. if its got a cracked head and bad lower, i would think try to find a jy engine rather than mess with the one you have.

Connecting rod is probably "floating" while your revving it. LOL. Put it in drive, does the noise get louder?
