Default Odd sound coming from rear of the cart on my 81

Ive got an odd squeaky sound coming from the rear of the cart when in motion. The sound is continuous, so not coming from springs etc. It also increases with RPM's. It doesn't increase in volume, but the squeaking gets faster and faster as the RPM's climb.

Jacked up the cart and could not hear the sound. Put cart back on the ground, and the squeaking was back. So obviously, it only squeaks with weight on it, or under load.

Anyone ever had excess "chatter" from the drive clutch? Or even the rear axle? When driving (even with the seat off) it definitely sounds like its coming from the rear end area, but its been very hard to pinpoint.

Ford, have you checked to see if motor is setting level? Meaning maybe motormount bolt may of came out(3/drivers-4/pass.). Causeing it to be in abind and also cause a noise in the belts/rear-end. Why i say this is because, if there is no weight on it when jacked up then you don't hear it. When you let down on your jack, and put aload on it then it makes the noise. Just a thought. I only had one bolt in mine, and things wher all in abind, lucky it didn't fall-out and screw things up.
