Re: Roys second 102 series build

Those wartime carbs seem to have some sort of maybe zinc coating, rather than the later painted ones. I'm looking for one for my HSD project if anybody has a spare :P

Re: Bermuda Round the Island Seagull Race 2019 - June 15

Thanks Naughty bits, I’ve sent some parts over to Bermuda, it would be good to see them in action. I just need to lose the issue of having to go to work. Soon !

Re: Water intake.

Well forced induction of cooling water is a something seen on other outboards for sure.
I’m not sure if movement of the boat through the water makes a difference or not, I suspect it’s not measurable.

Re: Gear oil and two stroke

Yes, some 140 grade oil from certain manufacturers will not emulsify, and if it does it separates very quickly as soon as the engine stops. The stuff John sells works well, and I bought a gallon of the same stuff online some years ago. Trial and error of different types is the only answer, or buy it...

Re: Villiers MK1 Points Box Gasket

I'd suggest either making a replacement, or perhaps George at Villiers parts might have them.

quite ironic from an individual removed from the forum because of his previous antics, now rejoining under a new name...

Re: Australian Olympic vs British Seagull AD102

interesting thread 8) Was the Olympic a licence made version of the seagull? What about the gearbox, how does that compare?

Re: Crankcases and Crankshafts

Actually I too was wondering what gives a person removed from the forum the right to take up a new forum identity, and continue with the same behaviours?

The forum had just about recovered with some of the members who had been driven away coming back...
