Re: BMB Britannia coil fix?

I am interested to see the letterhead. I used an ad as part of what to do but there is no boat in that. Britannia script.png Also the photo you posted is different to the one I found on the Internet and used as the base. It showed some colour in the Britannia figure. Thanks for your post as I didn't...

Re: BMB Britannia coil fix?

This is where I have got to so far with the decals. Still not totally happy but getting close I think. More work on the waves needed. If anyone can supply a photo of the side tank that shows the T in Twin reasonably clearly it would be much appreciated.

Re: BMB Britannia coil fix?

Thanks very much for that. So I can connect both plug leads to the output and it will be ok? I have read some posts claiming that doesn't work very well and others who say it does. You say to get the condensor as well. There isn't one in the original magneto setup so do I need one with the different...

Re: Help needed on Seabee

That basically confirms it for me. I hadn't noticed the absence of the leg band. Thanks for your help .Does anyone had a picture of a Seachief showing a decal. I found one picture of a Seachief Captain which must have been a smaller model showing a decal?

Re: Help needed on Seabee

Starting to think that it may be a Sea Chief instead. Found this photo which has the same transom clamp and is white all over. My one only shows white underneath the blue paint. No gold paint on the leg such as is on the Seabee. Does anyone have any info on the Sea Chief outboards or decals?

Re: Help needed on Seabee

Thanks John. That helps although the transom clamp is quite a different shape.

I would like to know more about this before beginning restoration, ie; original colour (it shows traces of...
