Happy to add (that means 1 + 1 presumably!): assume one boat; but where are you coming from?

Just finished re wiring the boat and thought i'd quickly start the engine to check it's all working ok, turn the key and i get a grinding type sound. the external gears I can see that connect to the flywheel? don't turn on the starter motor and the noise appears to be coming from inside. is this fixable or will I need the whole unit replaced? any ideas on cost?

move that post to the engine section, more likely to be viewed by someone who might know.


are you sure you wired it back up the same way? it worked before.

What whole unit do you think you might need to replace? I think that's possibly jumping to conclusions, but you need to explain the problem a bit more first, maybe post a pic showing where the grinding is coming from, describe a bit more fully etc. Or take it in for someone to look at it, but that might be an unnecessary expense.

An outboard I had in the past would not start when turned the key, purely because the starter motor bracket had come unwelded from the starter motor itself, so the teeth kept slipping out and would not turn the flywheel. Took it off, into an exhaust garage, a quick weld and was all fixed for 10.

Curious. Not wishing to be cruel, but you have just been working on the boat, "re-wiring". What else have you done? Think back, the most trivial thing could help diagnose the problem.
The re-wiring, are you sure that you have connected what was connected before? Particularly the battery to starter motor leads, have you used the correct grade of wire (thickness)?
Fair play, not many 15 year olds would tackle a re-wiring job, it is easy to get wrong! Pictures of what you have done would be good. Where are you based?

Ah! Was it you that I was sat next to at the Jolly to the Folly? No problem with the number of boats but let me know the final number of people when you can in order to help the pub cater and arrange tables. I leave you to liaise with the Southampton boats to meet up off Cowes if you're so minded.
