Re: EFNR564FF9 Gearbox Pinion Gear Removal

Re: base plate retaining screw

Here's a really helpful older thread... viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6040&hilit=seagull+threads

Although I thought the retaining bolt was 5/16 Cycle thread (26 tpi, 60 degrees). Above it's listed as 5/16 brass (26 tpi, 55 degrees). Not sure which is correct.

Re: Bermuda's Round the Island Seagull Race 2018

Nudge,

I'd like to think I planned all along to sit back and let my far better half do the heavy lifting this year in Sheweed 8)

But the truth is, I learned a good lesson about adequate port chamfering...!

Hopefully, Inappropriate redeems herself next year..!

Ebay Sellers & bead/sand blasting...

Just thought I'd whine about the proliferation of otherwise good 2nd hand seagull parts listed on eBay that appear to have been blasted lately - mating faces, bushings & all, more often than not. Not a fan. I'm close to wanting to organise a protest & make up some 'free the nipple'-like post...
