Have a XR Drive that was recently rebuilt by Max Marine in Havasu. Just recently started hearing a metallic clanking noise which reverberates and sounds like it's coming from the transom...mid transom to be exact. Noise is prevalent at idle, stops over 1,000 RPM...noise is in gear or in neutral, but like I said, goes away when you rev it over 1,000 RPM. Does not get better or worse if you crank the wheel in either direction. I shot the gimble bearing with grease from the zerk fitting...still have the clanking. Any advice or thoughts are appreciated and thanks in advance!
I previously posted this for the Outdrive guys and the feedback came back as my exhaust flappers were the culprit, I do NOT have internal or external flappers...any ideas are appreciated
