    from Vista, CA

    Hi guys,
    I want to make it as short as possible.
    I'm Gabriel, 30 yrs old, new to this forum and new to this country, I moved here 1 year ago from Germany, now live in Vista,CA with my wife Sheena, she has a beat up but awesome 1959 Ford Fairlane 500 (according to my research its a 332) that starts and runs great ever since we replaced the spark plugs and cables but it seems to make a weird metallic sound when you rev it like the throttle plate is forced shut or something...
    I know we are horrible people for letting a classic rot like that but we dont have a lot of money YET !
    we are gonna use the tax return for repairs:)
    I just wanted to ask you guys with more knowledge:
    can you identify from that crappy iphone video what that sound is?

    I didnt adjust the gaps on the spark plugs before i installed em...
    Timing not checked in forever
    valve clearence not checked in forever (arent they hydraulic lifters?)
    carb not adjusted (original 2B Carb)

    your help is much appreciated
