Re: Ebay laugh out loud thread..

Have looked at the sellers Facebook page and he is doing them very well. But over £300 including postage is a tad on the high side I would say. Trouble is you add up the hours it takes to do, and then add materials costs, starts getting prohibitively expensive. Good luck to him but I feel my max pri...

Re: Pair of 102s

I doubt that cylinder will be of any use, look closely at the cleaned up area, that is a crack.
Blue Hermatite and polished crack area shows he has been in there.
Lucky you did not pay much for it.

Re: Sjm restoration

As I was there in the dark with you before sunrise at the boot sale, when we heard a man in a van say "seagull" both of our ears pricked up. Your response was " excuse me mate did you just say Seagull? " It was a good buy after little negotiation, will have a dig in shed for a good chrome drive tube...

The motor has a Wipac Mk2 ignition. I thought Seagull stamped them when they converted to Wipac, so the W stamp could be explained.

Perhaps the 0 stamp was the first one they did, it is an early one probably the first few days of production.

I would strip the motor, if it wont run for more than 5 mins. or at least do a compression test.
Are you getting water out of the outlet when running? if not it could be stopping due to a partial seize.

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.
