Re: New Baby

My OF is still waiting for when I return from working from overseas, not too long hopefully 8) The question as always, is how far to go?

Re: TC 102 water cooling problem

Sounds very odd. Did you take off the fittings to the cylinder and remove all the flakes of rust from the cylinder?

Sometimes the water supply tube becomes blocked, or sometime the tube comes loose and is then not...

Re: Wanted Powerful British Seagull Outboard Motor
