No idea - Paul (south coast marine) sorted it all for me...so probably. It has been serviced as well, so I guess everything has been done...including that new injector I mentioned a few pages back.

Steve, not sure you can put all these issues onto the flywheel although clearly it needs sorting as a starting point.

Good luck with the new one and whilst I hope it solves your issues I not sure its the only culprit.

Looking at the corrosion under the flywheel have you identifies why this has happened, generally it means there is a water leak of some description.

I am hoping it's down to batteries, key switch, and flywheel.

# New batteries went in last weekend and this helped with some issues (no more voltage drop to 8V when starting)

# Collect new key switch tomorrow and hopefully this will iron out the final starting issues.

# Collect new fly wheel tomorrow so hopefully this will stop my low voltage alarm, and hopefully stop the trim problem when at WOT as I hope this is down to the low voltage.

Tomorrow is the day when it all comes together, I have a water test booked as well as running it in a tank isn't helping - it needs a good run at WOT to burn off all the old oil from winterisation.

Tomorrow night i will either be posting to say it's all worked and so much better, or I will be posting saying etec for sale!

Fingers crossed for you Steve don't forget to look for the source of the corrosion on the flywheel.... !

Ok to update this post.....

I was at Liverpool power boats at 8:30 this morning waiting for them to open so I could get my goodies...

Was back home by 10:30 with the new flywheel and ignition switch, both stripped down and swapped over by 12:00. Launched by 12:30 and started her up........

Firstly, no erratic stating when I wiggle the key - so new ignition switch has fixed that fault

And motor runs quiet and smooth, and no alarms - so that fault has been fixed.

I did a few runs at WOT and no trim problems, so that fault has now been fixed.

So back to 100%.

I did ask about the timing, and was told the new flywheel won't need timing adjustment, out of all the ones they have done timing has never been an issue.

Great news !
Do you have any clue what caused the corrosion ?
Did you find any water leaks under the cowl ?
