Re: Honda 9.9hp Outboard Won't Start
Is it electric start, or are you pulling a rope? If it's electric and you hear a click, that's not normal. If it's a rope, it should spin the motor, not click. If it's not in neutral, I think the rope might just pull out and not engage the flywheel?
Or is the motor seized? It should spin when starting.
The people who find fault in what you build typically don't build anything at all.
