[color=yellow]Doc Here:

A bit more info please.

Is it a stick? And did you say it was a 455 Olds in a truck? What truck ? 2x 4x?

If it's a stick, It could be a throw ~out bearing, or bent finger on the clutch pressure plate.

On both transmissions, it could be a bolt has backed out of anything that rotates, Flexplate/Flywheel, pressure plate/torque converter, and is striking or rubbing something solid.

The Crank could have too much end play.

The Starter could just be hitting the flexplate/flywheel and need adjustment/shimming.

More info...and we can help more.
