Starting problems 5.0L

So my 302 as having issues turning over. when i crank it it turns over a few times and then sometimes you will hear a loud "crash boom clank" followed by a rattle??? i have a video of this noise but i wasn't able to post it on here. also after turning it over without starting it and regardless if this noise happened you can hear a residual "click click click" coming from the engine. also one time it got stuck and it wouldn't turn over at all, i had to turn it by hand only the slightest bit and then it was fine.

what could be my issue here, i have no idea?

Re: Starting problems 5.0L

What are the issues or 'history' leading up to this? Recent work? Removed or adjusted distributor? I agree with JWKO on this, but it would be nice to have more info, so we can point you in the right direction.

Re: Starting problems 5.0L

If timing is the problem- you can do this to get it close so that you can start it.
1. Move cylinder #1 to as close to top dead center as you can. Postion harmonic balancer at -8 to -12. Pop the cap on your distributor and turn your distibutor rotor as close as you can to #1. This should at least make starting easy till you can time the car properly if this is the cause.
