Loud noise after changing oil pan gasket

Just changed my oil pan gasket on my 5.2. Went smoothly, everything tightened back up and looks good. Added oil, fired it up. It runs normally but there is an awful sound, almost like something is vibrating/buzzing. Its very loud (not an engine knock.) Almost sounds like its coming from the starter.

What did I do/what could this be??

And fixed. Pulled the starter back off and it looks like there was gunk inside from taking it off and messing with the oil pan. Cleaned out and she's good to go.

Glad to hear it. I was thinking that the solenoid was not retracting fully.
