You could have a problem with corrosion. First, make sure the bolts are out. Then try spraying it down with a PB penetrating oil.

Had the boat launched last weekend. it runs good and smooth. But there´s a loud rattling noise from the powerhead. The sound has always been there, but it has increased, and now sounds VERY loud. Its mostly when in idle. When accelerating, the sound disapears when reaching about ½ trottle.

You can turn the release valve on the power trim motor clockwise to disengage, that will allow you to manually lift. I carry a small screwdriver and small squirt nozzel bottle filled with motor fluid, so I can add some to the refill hole if it is low, leaks out, etc.

Flywheel aren't too difficult to replace. To fix it, simply open the side case, remove the stuck flywheel, install a new flywheel, and close the case again. This is a simple fix.
