Re: Gear box blunder

I believe when they are talking about excessive smoke caused by rings, bore etc they are talking about 4 stroke motors that has sump oil that is bypassing the rings or travelling through worn valve guides to burn in the combustion chamber whereas 2 strokes are designed to burn oil. They seem to smok...

Hi Rick. They stay in outbox until the receiver opens them. Took me a while to work that out.

Re: Flywheel

Can you not dress one in a lathe or pedestal drill? I've seen some really well presented ones.

Re: Gear box blunder

Sounds to me more like a spec of dirt got into the carb during transportation or similar and the seagull goddess was smiling upon you by having the motor conk out before damage to gearbox. I'm sure it is nothing serious.

Re: Kiwi Seagull site

Most 2 strokes are shut off by shorting the electrics while we starve the fuel, wonder if that makes a difference? Wonder if they whisker in the last dying revolutions as l only notice whiskering when they wont start.

Re: stuck flywheel

I just tap woodruff key out with screwdriver. They say piston should be bdc but l cant understand why as there is a gap between the counter balances so crank can still warp.

Re: Kiwi Seagull site

The original com8 plug had the electrode off centre. Maybe we need to go back to that. I've never had a whiskered plug on a seagull. On my sachs motorised bicycle, yes!

Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

Yep, they will come up well. Be stronger that flat back tails.

I never noticed that the std brackets tails were different. Either way.

Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

Looking good Nudge. I like the concave on the tail. Better than original!! (or is it originally like that?). Never seen an original tail on these come to think of it.

Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

Rob, with the brass skeletal bracket one can stretch it open after removing the thrust block bolt. With the std bracket you can't do this and need to unscrew those studs. Incidentally those studs come in two different sizes. You can compress that V but run the risk of snapping it.

Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

Excellent news. Looking forward to some delightful hours fettling. I don't quite understand the process with the core blanks. I'm assuming they are of a material that holds their form and is a higher melting temperature than the bronze yet doesn't fuse with the metal, basially a solid piece of 1 1/8...
