Hi..there apologies for the delay...

Do you know roughly where on the engine this noise comes from?

Does it change in pitch for example..operating the steering / revving the engine / or even operating the clutch for example?

Any obvious smoke from the back/tail pipe when this occurs?

Have you checked Oil?
