My nephew has been driving a Ford pick up for 2 months with torque converter make similar noise you describe. Very loud. I think listening in order to narrow it down before pulling the pan. I would think listening underneath without scope and covering transmission converter area and pan with furniture pad type sound damper to see if sound muffels.

Sounds like your nephew is in need of a new Flex-plate on his torque converter. A broken flex-plate does make a lot of noise, but those noises are a lot different than from what Royse describes, particularly given the rest of the information as to the condition of the engine.
