Re: Side Mount Bracket

Rene can you attach it onto a drive shaft tube & take a picture, from these pictures the top & bottom fitting don't look to line up.

Re: Side Mount Bracket

The lower picture has the correct thrust block but bracket has been cut and welded right at the top, to fit a much thinner hull, possibly on a transom. Whereas the top picture has had a top support fitted in place as a thrust block, & some weird device attached to the top support, so no ability to t...

Re: KSR1100

Cut a coloured paper gasket using a scalpel & the cylinder exhaust flange as a pattern, then take a photo of the paper lined up with the inner exhaust bolt holes to show your readers how disgracefully this inner exhaust fits. The gasket doesn't need to be made from any material that's too sexy, it's...

Re: KSR1100

Put the top half of the crankcase back onto the cylinder , then you'll see why there's no paint in the transfer port area!

Re: Owners of Australian Riptide Outboards - Call to Action

When spinning with the drill turn the fuel on, the bearings & the piston/cylinder hate running dry as it causes them to age very rapidly!

Are you sure it's a grease nipple & not a oil nipple?

Re: block surgery

That port is actually the exhaust port.

That is a strange place for cracking to start, it's normally up inside the port.

Did you remove the head & what did that look like, are there any photos of the contents of the water jacket?

Re: Plastic tank fuel tap replacement

That restriction is to hold the brass threaded insert in place!

Why not try a couple of fibre washers on the tap threads, & don't over tighten, damage that insert & it will leak & you have a throw away tank

Re: The History of Seagull Racing in Bermuda

Thanks for those great pictures, a lot of faces I recognise & a lot I don't. Do I know you Paskoya? Let's hope we can get a couple of Limeys over there next June to show you Onion eaters how to do it! Rene is up for it & I might have one more go before I get too old. That's if the grown ups take bac...

Re: It won’t start! EFNR44B7

The keyway in a 40 crank is in a different position to a century/ KF crankshaft. On a century the keyway is 158 degrees to the left of the centreline of the big end pin, looking from the flywheel end. On a 40 the keyway is 43 degrees to the left of the centreline of the big end pin, looking from the...

Re: It won’t start! EFNR44B7

It's starting to sound like H-A is closest to the answer, with his flywheel keyway suggestion.
