Could be in the starter, I would pull it down and take a look at the starter drive.

Here's a video of the sound

I have to walk the dog, be back in a bit.

That sounds like a rod knock. Is there any oil in the engine?

I'm pretty sure I might of ran it without oil but by the time I put new oil it was already runed

Yep, no taking it back.

What do you mean

The bearing are all shot in the engine from not having oil in the engine. Engine now needs to be rebuilt.
