Sounds like the starter maybe.... Crank it up, grab a wood broom handle, place one end against suspected noise and place the other end against ur ear.... (or be fancy and go get a stethoscope.:.. Wood handle works better IMO... U just got the trams done sounds like starter needs to be shimmed..

welcome to FSB, may get the answer to your question if you post it in the noobie section. but sounds like the starter is staying engaged or fly wheel is hitting the starter housing. may need shimming
