Mercury 4 stroke noise

2 posts in this topic

I have a new 50 HP Mercury 4 stroke outboard motor. When I decelerate quickly from high speed to low speed, the motor produces a high pitched squeeling noise. I have been told this is normal. I'm interested to see if anyone else out there is experiencing the same behavior. Are you convinced that this is normal? Also, when I shift into neutral, my engine makes a steady low pitched groan. Have you also experienced this noise?

Apparently it's normal with 4 strokes, I guess it could be gearcase noise which is more audible with a quiet motor.

Look few threads below and do a search for this issue, you'll find same question and answers.

      Had a jake come in at 6:25, thought it was a hen with it putting and cuts.  No gobble or fanning at all.  Caught us by suprise when we seen a little beard.  No bird for Abi yet.

      Finally made it out again.  This time with Abigail.  Bumped 2 birds on the roost walking out.  Hope they weren't toms or there are more near by!   Have heard a couple of gobbles in the distance.  Nothing close.   Good luck
