Re: Australian AMECO Seasprite Outboard

I think your brave tackling that job.

Hows the big end pin held in location? Interference or Weld?

Difficult to tell from your pictures.

Re: New support BS

How long ago was it, when we were looking into those things Charles? Seagull made 3 models all with the same size black painted wooden blockboard pad (220 x 285 x18mm ish), somewhere I have examples of all 3. Nice engine stands, but with a large footprint for only 1 motor (3 feet in a triangle about...

Re: Seagull 170

Your brave Cookie!

An early 170.

There are several old threads regarding 170's, have a good read before you start playing.

But please check the main bearings, big end, ignition, fuel pump diaphragm, & the lower unit before you venture forth.

Re: FVP10341

Has anyone else got a Seagull with that fuel mix/points gap label?

I wonder if it's a Seagull one.

Jeremy have any of your hand books got that points or fuel info?

Re: Little Forty flywheel no apertures

Both of the Wipac electronic CDI ignitions had no no apertures.

But your little forty was built way before the advent of the CDI, so it must have been a repair after British Seagull ran out of Villiers spares.

Re: Steel 'Johnson-style' tank

It is an "optional extra" "long range" Seagull supplied fuel tank. During the course of their history Seagull made 4 or 5 versions of the "Long range tank". The earliest was an extra long oval brass tank, then there were 2 versions of yours Mark, both supported by a fra...

Re: The Elusive Marston Twin

Not that elusive, there are a few about, have tried contacting the owner on behalf of the Marston register to see if he wanted to unamericanize, as the register members have re-manufactured several of the higher wear components but he chose not to communicate. There are other Marston models that are...

Re: M18 x 1.5 brass grease nipples for unseizing pistons

I fill the cylinder with a mix of 2-stroke oil & diesel before using a home made nipple (leaving the minimum air space), give a few pumps to increase the cylinder pressure & leave for a few days, this gets a little lube down the sides of the piston, with luck, before giving it the big pump!

Re: SJP(L) / FPL Bitsa Journey

Big end caps are marked so they shouldn't be reassembled with the cap the wrong way round, that's the most common cause of fractures.

I don't think they sell 18 x 1.5 mm grease nipples in the UK, lucky you, we have to make our own!

Re: Removal of dome nut

Mk 2 flywheels are quite brittle so handle with care. Did you try to start by using the electric drill silly idea? as that can over tighten the flywheel nut! I've locked flywheels by putting the piston just after TDC, then filling the cylinder with fuel mix & replace the spark plug, a sharp tap ...
