Re: Driveshafts...

The drive shaft was cyanide hardened at both ends to prevent twisting & locking in place happening. Though British Seagull or John might be able to lay their hands on a longer one that you could cut to size, if the ends of the one you find have been hardened, you'll have to cut with an angle grinde...

Re: clutched gearbox and stuff for 40+

I chose for the larger transom because it was a nice one all in bronze and because I also have 102 that I can hang on it. The propeller sits well below the keel as you can see on the older photo http://iloapp.shearwater.nl/data/_gallery/public/14/140283421015473300_resized.jpg Maybe I will adjust th...

Re: clutched gearbox and stuff for 40+

No, haven't tried it yet. There is a little bit of work to be done before it can run.
It is exactly the type of motor that I like at the back of my clinker ply dinghy

Re: clutched gearbox and stuff for 40+

An update on my clutch project. I managed to get all the things need for a conversion and assembled the lot. I actually haven't run it yet but everything seems to work well.

Re: Removing waterpump housing bolt 40+

What is actually best: heating the aluminium of the gearbox around the bolt of the bolt itself by applying heat to the head of the bolt and by conduction the threaded part bolt itself? I would say heating up the aluminium casting would be more effective because the aluminium expands more than steel ...

Re: Removing waterpump housing bolt 40+

Thanks, these are clear instructions. I ordered few new bits and will try once more the impact driver after another good heating. If that still doesn't work I will follow the directions given.

Removing waterpump housing bolt 40+

I'm trying to remove the gearbox from a 40+ . The outer bolt on top of the waterpump was easy to unscrew, but the one between the drive shaft casing and the exhaust refuses to cooperate. I tried it with heating the gearbox where the thread is several times, loads of WD40, hitting it with an impact s...

Re: clutched gearbox and stuff for 40+

I thought that the clutched gearbox of the Century and the 40 plus had the same gearboxes and have ratio of 1:3.5. Such as this one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/British-Seagull-Outboard-Clutched-Gearbox-For-Century-or-Forty-Plus-40-Or-100/321869525660?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111...

clutched gearbox and stuff for 40+

I want to convert my SJP long shaft to a clutched version of it. Maintaining the original Seagull looks, but with a little bit more convenience. I understand that it is mainly a matter of replacing the gearbox assembly. So I'm in need of : - gearbox 1:3.5 of the clutched type in good condition. - wa...

Opening a 102 gearbox

I'm still working on the restauration of my 102. Now I'm facing a dilemma. I can't get the end cap off. I would like to see if everything is ok inside. I tried a bit of hammering on the prop shaft but that doesn't work. Peeking through the oil filling hole shows no problems, everything is running sm...

Re: Original?

From the SOS site: http://www.saving-old-seagulls.co.uk/gallery/images/mvc-006f.jpg I'm pretty sure the one below is not oak, tongue in groove yes. http://www.saving-old-seagulls.co.uk/images/british%20seagull%20crate%202.jpg http://www.saving-old-seagulls.co.uk/images/british%20seagull%20crate%201....
