Re: Disassembly of a stuck Forty Minus SJM

... have a spring pin (as my 1969 Forty Plus) but appears to be solid and peened at both ends. Is this normal for an early 60’s Forty Minus? Is the removal as simple as filing one end of the pin and pushing it out with a punch? Can a spring pin be used or do I have to use another solid pin? 20200831_213121 ...

Re: tank alterations

Excellent, Charles many thanks, you've saved me a lot of work. I had just looked at a lot of info from 2014 on removal and soldering and decided it was a bad idea for me at least.

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...

Re: Tiller stud removal

One came out today, from the donor FP case. Center portion a bit scraped up from the grips but threads in good condition, will be fine once cleaned up a bit. But the stud in the SJM has less non-threaded portion to grip onto, only about 4mm protruding versus about 8mm on the FP. Already chewed it up...

Tiller stud removal

Any tips on getting these out other than the usual heaps of heat? Trying to swap one out from a spare crank case to my current project, but couldn’t get either stud out with heaps of heat and a hefty pair of vice grips. I don’t want to shear the studs so thought I would check on the forum before giv...

Re: electrolysis rust removal

Alas no, this cylinder is off AD4233, a 1948 outboard. It has the slotted welsh plugs instead of the hex plugs that the D would have. I could use it on the D but will keep it together with it's crankcase for originality. I have the matching gearbox and prop so will assemble this one after the D. I'm...

electrolysis rust removal

Included in a box of bits I came across, were most of the parts from an early 1948 AD. The cylinder was in poor condition being completely blocked with rust and there was a crack around one of the securing bolts that probably occured during the dismantling. The rust was rock hard and wouldn't easily...

... Just make sure it's bare metal and not plated. If you're going to treat the inside of a Seagull fuel tank then your preparations need to include removal of the Ewarts fuel tap and closing the vacant fuel port with a blanking plug. Probably obvious but nonetheless worth mentioning that if you're ...
