Re: British Anzani Minor information and parts wanted

Jan, I had one in the sixties, when I were but a lad.....no idea what happened to it, so I am not going to be much help there! I remember watching the choke mechanism fly into the canal when I unscrewed it too far. Very embarrassing. Where in Zanstaad are you? I am in Zandaam from the 17th for a few...

Re: Pics of Villiers and the Silver Century

Collector Inspector sir, why are you having trouble with your crocs? Round here we just take their zimmer frames away. You can get £10 for 2 at the scrappy!

I like that screw...I bet it took longer to find the right "wrong screw" than to have ordered the real thing!

Re: Shear pins

I would have thought the best thing would be to acquire a genuine Mariner one and see what they make it from. If in doubt go softer. The point is, it should break before the prop or the gearbox .Less shear resistant than the prop. Start too soft.

Re: Seagulls as the greenest motor on the water

The green lobby always seem to miss the point that a 60 year old landrover doing 15 to the gallon will pollute kess than a new car doing 65 mpg.....the biggest pollution is when you build them...it takes around 200 tons of water (I could be wrong, but it will be more not less) to make a ton of steel...
