Re: Marston 340cc Twin

No it's not the same engine, though it's the same model, OB with a clutch.

Did anyone ask the owner if it was OK to use his picture on here?

Re: My TC 102

We need to see a picture of the prop (plan view) & the lower unit to ensure you have the right combination.

Re: No drive.. :-(

Before you take anything to bits, remove the spark plug, engage in gear & poke a screw driver through the top front water inlet hole inlet until you can touch the pinion shaft or the drive shaft & rotate the propeller, can you feel any movement? Movement here would imply rusted out drive sha...

Re: BMB Britannia coil fix?

I think that the Mk1 BMB had a two bladed prop with a cooling water scoop & Lucas ignition that fires the spark down one HT lead through the first spark plug the across the motor via the cylinders & crankcase the up through the second plug up the HT lead & back to the coil. The Mk 2 BMB ...

Re: BMB Britannia coil fix?

Bruce wasn't the MK1 coil the funny one spark coil, that a single spark went down one plug & up the other?

Re: New Baby

You should have asked Rene, We had some Birmabright mixed so remanufactured parts are the same colour, not cheap, but we're all a bit anal!

Quite a few people have said that about me!

Re: Long distance Seagull trip.

42 miles around the island of Bermuda.

I'm not sure how far the Waikato race is, 80 something miles.

Search for the trip on the Murry the Aussies did.

Re: Plug gap

Undo the 1/4" BSF bolts below the baseplate, these should release the flywheel cover & with luck you should be able to lift it enough to see the bottom 1/2" of the flywheel rim & be able to see a shallow groove 3/8" above the bottom of the flywheel base, if the groove is prese...

Re: Plug gap

Yours is a factory rebuild & that doesn't tell us which ignition they fitted.

Remove flywheel cover & inspect flywheel rim,

no groove white CDI

groove black CDI

Run at 25 thou until your sure, as the black CDI struggles at 35 thou, & replacements are expensive!

Re: Plug gap

Well the White CDI is 35 thou & the Black 25.

I run both at 25 thou & haven't had a problem yet.
