Re: HSD12704.L

Water jacket cleaned out, and gearbox examined tonight, it was pumped completely full of grease! Under some pressure too, as the end cap lifted off, when the bolts were undone. Dirty horrible job getting it all out :oops: Now all cleaned out, just that broken bolt to have a look at. Good news is tha...

Re: HSD12704.L

So a bit more work done, magneto dismantled, all parts cleaned, and power head stripped. Next job is to flush out the rust flakes from the water jacket, and order a new coil from Villiers parts.

Re: HSD12704.L

Finally got around to stripping this engine. I've decided to do no cosmetic work apart from a general clean, light buff up of the alloy parts, and then put it back together. Nothing will be painted, and it looks like the coil is toast. It was partially seized, which turns out to be the piston tight ...

Re: The Marston Register Wish List.

I've got a couple of new bayonet caps available, with replica (Dummy) air valves. £32 each. The cap breathes through a small hole in the diapragm.

Re: Early 102 on the Bay

Yes, a great buy that. If you look on the SOS main web pages there are some prints of early post war magazine tests, showing an exactly the same engine.

Re: I am Interested

Who are you shipping it with? That one I sent you some years back went via DHL in around 5 days. Not cheap though!

Re: Genuine “barn find”

Bell woodworking in Leicester also made mirror dinghy kits, very popular in the 1970s, I’ve got one in my garage, that has never been built! It was really common to see a seagull on the back of a mirror, so no surprise if they sold seagulls to go with the boats?
