    My wife has caused something similar when she thinks, and it looks like, there is a little less than a quarter of a tank and then she parks in the drive... large incline, and due to the incline the fuel preasure is to low to start. 5 gallon gas can later cranked right up and drove to the gas station. It clicked as well, but I don't know that it sounded like a Tommy gun. Hope you already solved it. Just thought I would throw this out there to you.
