Honda 50hp 2009 question ?????

Recommended Posts

Just recently purchased this motor from a private indidvidual and yesterday we put a pair of water cups (earmuffs) and it started fine with no problems. My question is when we engaged the prop at low idle it made a clicking knocking sound but when you gave it some gas it would sounded fine when we put it in reverse it was fine without giving it any gas.We did tighten up the prop some and it did seem to help some but not completely.I was wondering running it with no water resistence at all could this be normal it seems to be engaging completley too. We had a 25 horse and that never sounded like that when we did this before.Any help would be appreciated thanks

I am gonna say that is normal because my 60hp 4 Stroke merc does the exact same thing.....only at idle without a load, on the muffs. Give it a bit of gas no sound. I would say it's just the gears in the lower unit meshing/unmeshing without a water load cause I definitely hear nothing like that on the water and I have spent many hours trolling recently.

Your shift linkage could perhaps use a slight adjustment to make your shifting more crisp... but unless you notice it in the water I wouldn't worry about it too much.
