Hi all: Here is the problem....
- Engine runs smooth, great performace and no issues
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!!
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.
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.
