Odd noise from engine

I'm getting an odd noise from my engine. It sounds like it's coming from my alternator actually? It's like a metal on metal clunking noise. I put a dowel rod on my engine block in several places and it's not internal. I'm just wondering if the pulleys make a sound like this? Or the alternator? I've never heard a sound quite like this... Any help? I'd appreciate it!!

Did you ever find your noise? I noticed last nite that my alternator is kinda making the noise that you are talking about. But it goes away after say 20 seconds. HMMMMMM.....Im having a vision of a dcpower alternator in my future....
