Re: Westerbeke 30B motor clicking, high amp draw
Chuckles is right, the fuel pump makes a clicking noise as it is electric and self-bleeding. However, the clicking should only be heard when you turn on the ignition switch, and according to the OP, the noise is heard when he turns the battery switch.
I would pay close attention to this, just to be on the safe side - a short in the engine room could be catastrophic.
