BB7 makes clanging noise

This is a new install of an old brake on an old frame. I swapped it from one bike to another. The brake worked before it was installed.. Any ideas?

I believe my install is OK. It is set to 2/3 outboard and bolts are tight. When the wheel spins, it makes a clanging noise, which can be heard in this video.

Post a side on view of the brake setup.

The outer edge of the rotor looks very close to the caliper, is the wavy edge hitting the inside of the caliper as it rotates?
