Re: cutting out

No progress, I'm not getting much water time to test it out. One thing I have noticed though is that the fuel level in the 'clear' plastic U of the fuel line changes. It starts out fully charged but gradually little bubbles appear at the fuel tap end and grow in length until they are about half way ...

Re: Gear oil

Hi, I think I will stick to 90 oil, as I haven't had much of an issue , with oil loss. I don't use my motors that much, but after a few hours use over 3 or 4 days, the oil is thick and well emulsified. Usually after a few days at home, I will drain it out, and refill with clean oil. I have yet to s...

Googled it. At $385 for a 20 litre drum it's worth more than my whole collection of Seagulls. Does it come in 2 litre bottles too? Couldn't see them. I'll have to find a Shell dealer.

Re: Gear oil

Bugger! Guess who bought the Penrite... Looks like I'll be looking for some Shell Strombus before I do any great damage.

Re: Gear oil

I use my gulls for regular trips up and down the Chanel, stopping off at the odd shack on the way, often this means long running times in access of 4 or 5 hours with out top up or draining. Just in November on such a trip, I damaged a gearbox by the wrong oil and was faced with a rebuild and a spar...

Re: serial numbers for a 102

Thanks for the offer Andrew. Unfortunately my advice has been that the prop shafts are not interchangable between the clutched and direct driven models. Bugger!

Re: Time for the Riptide.

Different ignition advance levers on the two single too. Do you know how they are meant to be operated in ...
