recent startup of "click" noise from dizzy 351W

It did not used to do this. I recently replaced the distributor cap, and I've fired it up twice since then (on the hose, I have not run it on the lake). The first time no clicking noise, sounded just like before I replaced it. The second time I have a click, sounds like once each engine revolution (guessing). It is coming from the distributor at least it sounds loudest in that location. I pulled the cap, thinking mechanical contact of some kind. No dice. Everything inside looks like it's supposed to, no hitting going on between rotor and cap. And why would there be, seeing as caps are the same? So I'm at a loss as to why it started making this clicking noise. Any ideas? Should I worry? I'm the worrying kind lol.

I've linked a vid. You can hear the clicking when I have the camera close to the engine.
