C&P gears making a lot of noise. Advice?

Hi all, I’ve been working on a new-to-me 10x15 old-style C&P, and after oiling it up, there is this consistent, loud clicking noise, that seems to be the cam gear and the main gear interfacing in perhaps an undesirable way. It’s consistent throughout a full revolution of the main gear, so it doesn’t seem like the cam shaft is bent or anything. I’m new to C&Ps (my other press is a 7x11 Pearl, which is a bit simpler) so maybe this is something that y’all have seen before? The gears themselves are clean and in good shape. Would love any tips or advice. Thank you! Video with sound here:

Thank you! -Jacob
