Apparently I missed something.(??)  Aren't the AMC bearing retainers one diameter from one end to the other?

In the late 60s/early70s there was an AMC TSB related to supposed TOB noise- I have a copy of it. The problem wasn't the TOB. There was an issue with the input shaft/bearing on some T10s. The fix was to put a spring in the end of the crankshaft to put an axial load on the input shaft. No idea if this is your issue, but you seem to have tried everything else...

That TSB has to be one of the absolute worst engineering solutions I've ever heard of.
The spring in contact with the rotating crankshaft and transmission main shaft would want the two to rotate together. All kinds of issues from shifting to the spring wanting to wind and unwind depending on acceleration or deceleration. And then are the wear points of a hard steel spring were it does not belong!
If the transmission front main shaft or bearing is making noise - take the transmission apart and fix it.
My Opinion.

Agree. It's not something I would do, I was just mentioning it. The TSBs were generally hack fixes because AMC was paying for it.

Somewhere on here is a thread where a member made some new retainers from stock.
With pictures in the thread and some specs, maybe forum search could find that old thread with some info?
