Goose??

My Hunter sounds like I stepped on a goose for a second or two when starting the last 2 days!?
Only when engaging the starter; then when running, it's normal!?

Is there a goose trapped in the motor?

Not sure if you're serious, BUT I can tell you what I believe it is since I experienced recently with my 90. What's happening is for a split second the starter is not disengaging, and is causing that "screech" at startup. Does this sound like what you're experiencing?

I pulled my starter (which was about 2mos old, Britpart), put my old one in (which was functioning fine before, just did an R&R since I was putting a new clutch in) and the sound went away immediately. Sent the other unit back, which they replaced it with no issues.

If this is the case, I'd say get it taken care of ASAP - from what I read it can cause some damage if it continues to "hang".

PS - this is a little odd, as it's a Honda Odyssey video, but is EXACTLY what mine sounded like:

Yes!
I say it sounds like someone stepped on a goose, but it's a sort of screech/howl noise just when engaging the starter.

Jeff - well then, new starter (or good used one) and you should be back in business. Keep us posted.

Couldn't find anybody selling a used MG starter so I replaced it with a Will Tillery unit I picked up a while back.

The goose sound is gone.

Glad to hear...I likewise swapped in my old/used starter when I had my issue. The new/replacement has been sitting on the workbench ever since...
