Re: Buyer beware!

You might be being a little bit harsh, as that appears to be a Seagull made replacement SD crankcase. Which would you prefer original crankcase with tired main bearings or a replacement that probably has done much less work? Your right Tam, I've had bits from him, accurately described, & no prob...

I was 16 at the time, my previous car was a 46 Hilman Minx that seized up as I was running a mix of central heating oil plus petrol I syphoned from dads car.

Re: British Anzani history

Re: Thrust Block.

A length of turned Delrin with a decent groove in the middle, would be ideal. Seagull didn't help by putting the parallel face on the outside, it will mean you can't tighten the retaining bolt very tight without loading the casting up. That's what I used when I re-manufactured the FV series thrust b...

Re: Thrust Block.

There is a great deal of merit in Hugz's suggestion, a square bit of hard wood with a bit of a groove in the middle & an 8mm hole offset from the centre & you could end up with a 4 thickness thrust block adjustable by rotation held in position with a much cheaper 8mm stainless nylock nut &am...

Re: Thrust Block.

Dave take the thrust bock assembly from your existing 102 cc size transom bracket, & try it for size in your new one.

It's difficult to be certain from the pictures, which block you require Century or QB for your new bolt on bracket.

Re: Another SD

Have a look at your last flywheel picture at 6 O'clock on the baseplate, you will see the letters "JM" underneath that spoke of the flywheel you should find the rest of the number that Hugo wants.

"I removed the three screws to remove the cover at the back of the prop", could make that an FNR box.

Photos & the motor serial number would give a clear picture of which gearbox your asking the question about.

Re: Fv2923

All the original ones I measured Tam were 18 gauge, 0.048" about 1.2mm, but I only measured 4 or 5 that I would bet were original.

You seem to have 2 bottom plates, the top ones didn't have transfer port notches.
