Re: Seagull Sport

It's dependant on exactly which model you've got, the number's on the side of the cylinder.

A pic of both sides of the power head would help.

Re: New guy here having carb issues

Well your putting the carb from an 80cc, 50 : 1, reed valve motor onto a 102cc, 10 : 1, piston ported motor with 25% more capacity, that probably revs 30% less. What's the throat diameter of your Yam carb & which jets are currently fitted & what size Jets are available at your location & at what sor...

Re: New guy here having carb issues

Bluff Southland?

Jetting you carb is not going to be easy, as it was probably used on a motor of half the ccs & with a 50 : 1 fuel mix.

Re: Photos i found in the drive cleanup Someones Homebuild masterpiece.

You've got to keep an eye on those Kiwis, Sneaky, sort out Covid by doing the job properly, then start bastardising Seagulls, why didn't they follow our example & completely mess up our response to everything!

This really hurts, That's a very nice piece of work Cam!

Re: Cooling water 40

Normally they come out as most of the locking is in the clearance void in the water pump housing where water stays & over time forms an aluminium oxide buildup which seems to work far better than Loctite, you could see evidence of it in your pics. When you replace the broken screws with new 1/4" BSF...

Re: Cooling water 40

Try with penetrating oil & the vice grips first!

I've been told by several friends that I wouldn't be suitable for that job, as it would just be like looking in a mirror!

Re: 102 help

I was interested in the colour of the plug electrode after prolonged use.

It's almost impossible to get a Seagull piston hot enough to cause problems, without major cooling problems!

Re: 102 help

Could you post pics of your boat with one of the transom with the motor on it including the prop, & both side views of the motor & the electrode on the spark plug you've been using. What fuel mix are you running & is your carb jetted for that mix? Seagulls are not famous for running hot, in fact it'...

Re: Tiller stud removal

The normal way to remove these is 2 x 3/8" BSF nuts locked together on the outer thread & soak in penetrating oil for a couple of days, then with a 3/8 BSF ring spanner on the nut closest to the crankcase try undoing in the normal direction, if it feels like you might shear the thread off, try a sma...
