Re: Photos i found in the drive cleanup Someones Homebuild masterpiece.

Re: 3D printing

I have 3d printed parts for seagulls....So a new part could be cast!
It would have looked better if the layer height was smaller or at least cleaned up a bit.

Re: FPL won't runwithout choke

Hi,
First off Seagulls leak dont worry about the oil that leaks out from it.

Have you cleaned the filter inside of the fuel tank? Your problem is a fuel issue (not getting enough fuel) that is why it is working with the choke on.

Re: waitara river seagull race
