I doubt you have disrupted the bearings, as they r pretty solid little buggers. Your talishaft only goes into a oil seal then onto the spline. There shouldnt have been any dramas fitting that back up.
Its not the fanbelts etc??..I know thats a silly question, but anyway.
Maybe the brass bush that goes from the gearbox spline to the crank/flywheel is worn. Is anything rubbing/hanging down on the tail shaft as it spins?
can u hear it in neutral or just in drive gears? Do u have a 2 piece tailshaft...what car have u got?
Nothing beats the sound of a V8
