I attached the pic of the mower info.

"Perhaps that's one of the spindle housing screws, and the spindle housing shattered at the mounting hole? I would start off by verifying that each spindle housing has all 4 or 6 (depending on spindle housing model) mounting bolts intact."
Are the spindles the belt pulleys? Sorry, inherited the mower with the purchase of the house, and while I replaced the motor myself, I'm clueless on the actual blade/deck area.
It does have a B&S replacement engine, but A) the noise isn't coming from the engine, B) engine is solidly mounted to the frame, C) the engine is running smoothly as it always has. This doesn't mean you're wrong, I am no expert, just providing my observations.
EDIT: watching a video of a guy changing spindles, it looks like I need to check the bottom of the deck where the spindle bolts are, like you suggested. Will do that after work.
