Re: Tiller stud removal

One came out today, from the donor FP case. Center portion a bit scraped up from the grips but threads in good condition, will be fine once cleaned up a bit. But the stud in the SJM has less non-threaded portion to grip onto, only about 4mm protruding versus about 8mm on the FP. Already chewed it up...

Tiller stud removal

Any tips on getting these out other than the usual heaps of heat? Trying to swap one out from a spare crank case to my current project, but couldn’t get either stud out with heaps of heat and a hefty pair of vice grips. I don’t want to shear the studs so thought I would check on the forum before giv...

Wanted: silver century cylinder

Looking for a silver century cylinder to be sent by post. Don’t mind visual condition, but it will be used actively so condition is important.

Last one sat with salt water in the waterways for about 10 years...

Thanks!

Spark plug diagnostic / sea trials

Finally got to take one of my small gulls out for a sea trial this weekend. 3 minutes in and the tap was leaking fuel and then the prop stops spinning while power head purring smoothly. Hmmm. Back to the dock for a check and found two surprises. Firstly the fuel cork was not a cork at all, but perha...

Another "new" in box seagull

I picked up EFPC59EE3 a few years ago, and it has been in storage ever since. Seller told me it was his father's, and that it has never been out of the box. The box has certainly been opened, but looking at the way the engine us mounted in there, I am inclined to believe it has never been removed. C...

Re: Helicoiled at birth?

I have 2 model 170s from different years in (I think) the early 1980s, and both are helicoiled with what appear to be original heads. I’ve always assumed they were done at the factory since both were helicoiled and I acquired them from different sources.

Re: Removing a fuel line [Forty Plus]

You can hold the tap with a pair of pliers while you unscrew fuel line nut counter clockwise. Then the tap should unscrew from the tank easily by hand. You can clean/check both then put tap back on first tightly before attaching fuel line. Probably good to check the tap cork while you have it off.

Re: TD67391L

Wouldn't you know it, the prop says 102 on it. I looked before but it was painted over so not obvious.

Any thoughts on what's happening where the exhaust tube meets water pump housing? I don't have my other 102 handy to compare to, but something looks amiss here.

TD67391L

Found this one at an antique marine motor expo over the weekend. Was mostly steam engines, very old inboards and a collection of US outboards, all very fun to see and lots of them were running. This TD was lying on the ground behind a rack of restored motors, and owner was more than happy to part wi...

Re: 170 Postmortem

You were right about the locking wire marks, they're clear in several spots. Guess it didn't last long at all without it!

Here can see the slight bend at the base of the rod:

threads stripped out of conrod:

170 Postmortem

Finally opened up a 170 I've had a few years. When I got it, the flywheel was loose but would only turn a few degrees in either direction, so I expected it had gone the usual way of conrod/big end failure. At first this seemed to be the case. But this motor has obviously seen a long service life, so...

Re: A seagull afraid of the water

Could be poor seals on the crankshaft housing causing performance problems. This was addressed recently on another thread:
