well fix that and take some video.
you ever change the shift rod bushings? maybe your chains are quiet now so you can hear new noises.
just to eliminate the clutch as a possible problem I would test to see if it's slipping. Park the car, set the brake, put in second gear and release the clutch without giving any gas. If the engine stalls your not slipping, if it continues to run then it is. Just my 2 cents hope it helps

I took a video of the noises my ****s making, I've already begun disassembly to retime the timing chain, but here it is.
Update - so I finished tearing the car apart again today and Quadruple verified the timing was right one and it was. I tighted up the lower tensioner on notch and bled the upper tensioner perfectly. However I am experiencing the same noise.
My thoughts at this point are that its the shifter rod. I only experience this rattling noise at upper RPMS, however does anyone know if the shifter rod can cause the car to struggle to idle? My car is very slightly puttering. Let me know your thoughts.
Update - I've figure out the cause of the rough idle and it was not related to the shifter rod, it was a tiny possible vacuum hose down near the smog pump I must have knocked loose doing the coolant pipe swap out.
Shifter rod is in fact causing my noise I'm hearing its extremely loose up removal, wobbles around like a bastard. Just need to receive my bushings and new radiator I ordered and were finally road worthy!!!
