See if it'll do it when the engine is not under load (in park). If so it's a bearing. HTH. - Jim

It still does it with ac belt off

Sounds like it comes from alt. But pulley is tight ,could it be possible that it is bad inside

If you still have the knock with the belt(s) off it's going to be a bearing in the engine. HTH. -Jim
