Volvo MD6A weird issue!
I've got a new-to-me Carter 33 with a Volvo MD6A 10hp. The engine starts and runs like a champ, with one hitch - the starter won't turn off!? Seriously, if I have any power running into the system, the starter tries to start the engine. The only way to make it stop is by turning the perko switch to the "off" position. Any thoughts?
I've tried detaching the ignition switch completely and it still tries to start. I've tried it with the key in the start position, off, accessory, etc. and no difference.
From what I can tell (talking to the pervious owner), this has never happened before - and I trust him.
One culprit I can think of is that, a week ago, we did manually start the engine using the crank handle, but not sure if this could cause such as issue or is it just an unlucky coincidence.
Help please, any thoughts or suggestions?!?!
