2006 E-Tech 200hp - Issue on shut down

Hi all:  Here is the problem....

 

- Engine runs smooth, great performace and no issues

However....

When I put it in neutral and turn the key to off position, it shuts down but then "spools up" or has a whirring noise, not unlike the noise on the flywheel from the old pull cord engines....sounds like gears rotating.


My first thought is its an issue with the starter motr...but looking for some advice.  Thanks from a newb!!

Is the boat still moving when you put it in neutral and shut it off? If so, It may be that the neutral position is out of adjustment and the motor still slightly in gear. With the boat still moving, it would cause the prop to continue rotating making the clicking sound you hear.

Thanks....no the throttle is def in neutral....I also left it in gear nd shut it off - same result. 

It def sounds like it is coming fromt he to of the engine, not prop or lower gear unit.

Jonesy,

 

I'm not sure if this is the same noise you are hearing, but when I place my key in start, my fuel pumps turn on. I usually wait to hit start buttons until they are done. When I press stop, the fuel pumps will run momentarily and then I take the key to off.

Remove the plastic flywheel cover to check for contact and see if the starter gear is staying engaged.

Plastic cover over metal flywheel.
