This is weird. Had my car running (1970 396) to check on a trans issue. All of a sudden it started to knock/clack and sounded like it was coming from the valve train. Turned it off, let it sit for a bit then started it back up. Now its running fine with NO noise. Ideas?

Not here
Double awt 7 are you running hydraulic or solid lifters? Is there a chance you have oil pressure issues at idle allowing a lifter to collapse?
