Do I really need another seagull.

The motor was pretty local and it was cheap enough, it may get some use on the boat.
Most likely it will be moved on, as 1979 is I little modern for me, I will see.

Re: Frankenstein's Seagull

Fuel inlet port from the carburettor is behind the piston, the transfer port that lets fuel from the crank case to the cylinder head is above the piston. The piston is the right way up, you need a sealed crank case, so look for worn crank case bushes and piston compression, you have a spark, so must...
