Question Question Possible rattle or knock???

I just finished replace the valve cover gasket on my 94 2.3L topaz, Everything went well oil leak has stopped. Ive noticed lately I am getting rattle or lite knocking sound @ idle, First thought it was water pump bears rattling, I pooped the belt off to see if their was any looseness in the pulley area, Everything is good, No overheating, Belt Tensioner is 1 month old. I also checked the timing its right on its mark. I was told by another guy that owns a tempo, He said it could be the harmonic balancer pulley?. It sounds like it coming from that area. Any idea's?

thankyou in advanced.

Try removing the belt and starting it just for a sec and see if the noise goes away. If it does then you know it's something that's belt driven.

Awsome I did the belt test, I had a bad clutch pulley in the A/C compressor, I just deleted the A/C problem solved.

Thanks for the info tip.
