Re: New guy here having carb issues

I'd suggest looking on ebay for the correct carb, as setting up the one you have might be tricky. To attach photos see this screenshot:

Re: Seagull Parts and the Mini Lathe

I have the same lathe, in the UK several sellers market them, mine is a Chinese made Chester lathe. Works well for small items.

Re: Working on the "D"

I made one out of nickel brake pipe on an earlier project, and bent it using a hand held Bending tool. I’ve also made a SD pipe the same way,out of copper tube.

You have made a great job, the attention to detail sets a standard for all. Love those correct gearbox cap brass bolts 8)

Re: Early British Seagull tank

It would be great to know more about the transition from John Marston Ltd to the new British Seagull company. For example when did the actual transition take place, when did production move etc?

Re: Marston Rudder

Didn’t the OP/ON have the top rudder fitting that was a clamp around the exhaust?

Re: Old castings

I might be interested, I have a couple of mallards myself. How much are you asking? Also are they all non machined?

Re: Marston on ebay

There’s an OA just appeared too, with a cracked block that seems to have lost its cooling fins. It’s also been flashed over with silver spray paint. Oh dear.

Re: Marston on ebay

Yes, a big word of caution required for sure. The tiller mount seems to be missing, as it has some sort of frame bolted to the crankcase. So quite possibly new crankcases required. Also there are signs of oil coming from the gearbox cap, threads gone perhaps? Somebody will bid big money for this one...
