I suspect you're experiencing main bearing rattle. Loose mains can rattle on start up, until they get some oil flow. A bad rod bearing will not normally come and go like a main bearing. My 302 F150...

The gas shouldn't be high enough in the float chamber to leak where you say it's leaking.

Those headers should have come with a bolt set. Is there a chance the original owner has the bolts? Or they are stuffed in one of the collectors?

Yes, 460s in motorhomes do break the right rear exhaust manifold bolt and warp the manifolds. And sometimes the head breaks at the bolt hole. The headers are the cure.

Another possibility is any GM Delcotron, from the 60 or 70, with a Marine/Farm Implement regulator installed. The regulator is the only difference between a one wire and a 2 or 3 wire.
