Ratcheting sound

I have a '41, AK with a 228 and a 4 speed. Just replaced clutch and throwout bearing and there is a ratcheting sound from transmission area when I slow down. I can only hear it at low speeds i.e...rolling to stop sign. Doesn't matter if clutch in in or not. I have heard a lot of different driveline noises but not this one. Any ideas?

A loose or worn U-joints will make that sound.

Was the noise there b4 you serviced the clutch? If not, you did it. Look at what you may of changed. If there is a carrier bearing? Make sure you didnt install the retainer backwards. It really looks like it wouldnt matter, but it does. Trust me, i learned the long way..

Another thing. Look at stupid crap. Like speedo cable routing, etc. Make sure nuttin is near the driveshaft. Loose ubolts on ujoints will make all kind of racket also. Keep us posted. U got me curious 🤔
