The engine just had the headgasket changed and basic service done at the yard. Started fine for two days and then it would not start. The engine makes a clicking noise and barely turns over. I thought bad battery and put in a new battery. Same thing, clicking and barely turns over. Any suggestions on where I go from here in solving the problem?
Thanks in advance..Sid
It still sounds like the battery or the connections. It could be the starter motor. Try wiggling all of the connections. Try tapping on the side of the starter with a metal object. Also try turning the motor by hand to make sure it will rotate normally, if not you have bigger problems. I will bet it is just one of the battery cable connections though.

Re: Volvo won't start..Lagoon 410
I am in the same situation. I took the starter out and had it bench tested. It had low amperage for the starter and was noisy. It had bad bushings, accumulated dirt and oil sludge in case and the drive had failed. The fault diagnosis typically starts with terminal connections to solenoid connections to starter functions to causes of engine drag or freeze.
Turned out to be a relay. This Volvo, the 27 hp, has two relays. They were located up on the rear port side of the engine. I believe the other relay is for the glow plugs. In any case it was a 14 dollar part at West Marine. No I didn't use the Bosch one. It was 25 bucks and had to order. This relay goes to a Mercury trim tilt system. Same relay I'm told....
Thanks for all the replies!
