Re: The Great Annual Waikato River Seagull Outboard Regatta

It All your fault, now we are back in lockdown! (in Auckland ) you had to open your mouth and use the "C" word.

Re: 170 con rod specs

That bronze cap should last a life time, and it saves having to put a bearing shell in it.
looks like the bush you put in the small end has a smaller hole than the original one? Or is it just a thicker bushing.
