Seagull outboard with forward/neutral/reverse

But I have been doing some research and I have found out that these motors can be converted to 25:1 fuel oil mixture. Just wondering what is involved in doing this? Does the motor need any d...

Re: Bargepushers

I just purchased a seagull outboard. It's serial need is WSPCL1897CC4. I think it is a barge pusher. It has a clutch that will put it in and out of gear.

Gas tank and carb cleaning

What's the best and easiest way to clean the inside of the gas tank and carb on a seagull that hasn't been used fir awhile. I can smell old gas smell inside the tank.

Gas tank and carb cleaning

I smell old gas in the gas tank and was wondering if I should clean the tank and carb before I try to start it with fresh fuel. If so...
