Seeing no actual interest/discussion ongoing I will hold any further until maybe sorted in the future.

I am persisting however.

Re: New Owner of an LS; Very Confused as to what I have

Wow Keith looks like lockdown has affected you, hope you are OK?

Not sure what you are trying to say in your previous post, "showing my true colours" what is that supposed to mean?

Perhaps it would be best if you left it some more years before posting.

Having a dig at a free site is a cheap shot.

Re: New Owner of an LS; Very Confused as to what I have

Re: OA Parts

Sadly replacement barrels are hard to find, don't forget we are playing with 80 plus year old engines and will be lucky to have one that runs. But never say never, I bought this one a couple of years ago to resurrect an engine that I thought was a no hoper. new cylinder.jpg 20180405_191322.jpg They ...

Re: OA Parts

Charles is your best option Bruce, he will have all the information of what is available on the Marston Register spares list. There should be lots of spare pistons as cylinders fail most. Not sure what the standard bore size was, replacement cylinders are very rare and expensive. I would think makin...

Re: What holds the crank bush in place?

Why are you using grinding paste? You should be fitting the bush to the crankcase by heating the case and freezing the bush. Then if the bush is too tight for the crank to fit then it should be line reamed to size. The bush is designed to be fitted to the crankcase and the crankshaft should rotate ...

Re: 1961 Johnson 5.5hp

I like the Johnson Evinrude twins.
You will need a couple of coils i expect, bought my last ones from Texas as it was way cheaper.
I have this slightly later 6hp and I love it, powerful and quiet.
