Driveshaft may not be in alignment or loose. Had clank similiar when I owned my road runner, just before the drive shaft dropped. The driveshaft loop worked great, prevented even more damage to car and pavement, diff. oil was all over the place. Lost the pig but those were a plug and play (differential gears).

No it's not that.
It's driveline slack, It happens on & off the throttle stronger in lower gears.
Brown Bros. had the diff.,apart case was a little worn out but nothing real serious. Noise is still there.
Anybody out there heard of Ben Calimer?
We'll he apparently fixes the MT-82 clunky trans.,supposivley
Somebody out there in never never land has got the same sound in there GT/boss mustang👋

Not sure I'm sure. If it's slack or looseness in the tranny it must be worn bushings or bearings. Slight in and out of the coupling shaft would be fine but any up and down movement is wear. Should be same with drive shaft meaning a bit of rotational is OK but any sideways or up and down slack is maybe a bad universal?Believe I read too a small clank is normal with the Bosses under certain acceleration conditions (that may be with 2 section drive shaft though).

Well wait a minute, recall that TymeSlayer had a brand new one piece driveshaft and it went bad on him while at Las Vegas for Track Attack. Really tied him up, shouldn't of happened. Please correct me if inaccurate info, could never refind postings.
