These are a few of when I was building back up - mostly of the carb. http://i636.photobucket.com/albums/uu86/landypete/Carb.jpg I've also sprayed the coil etc with lacquer to hopefully stop the damp getting in. http://i636.photobucket.com/albums/uu86/landypete/Buildup1.jpg The whole lot has been str...

Block won't come off the drive tube...

I'm obviously doing something wrong here...!! Forty minus, and I've read the manual (thanks John!) Both nuts off the bottom of the block to tube flange, exhaust tube is free to move (it rotates in place !) but whatever I do I can't get the block and drive tube to separate more than about 1/8th of an...

I had the same problem with my nine year old and a surplus of featherweights. So I built a one 8x4 sheet 6mm ply boat. http://i269.photobucket.com/albums/jj60/Horsley-Anarak/th_1sheet.jpg When it is finished I will post pictures of how it goes with a featherweight on the back. H-A H-A Is that from ...

Vic

That's the sort of thing I was looking at - is it from readily available plans..?

I've also looked at a D4 which may become the start of a hybrid design !

Cheers all for the comments ! The number of boats vs engines made me laugh - we have 6 vehicles for 2 drivers in our house at the moment..! :D It is more of a father/son/daughter project - something that can be used at some point for all sorts of tasks so I'm keen to make it something that is usable...

Small Boat/Pram/Dinghy for a Forty Minus

Afternoon... was talking to the boy (my 10 year old..) about the gull at the weekend, and he raised a valid question ! 'What boat are we going to put it on Dad..?' :? Got me thinking, as we are currently boatless and the stuff I am looking at is usually inboard diesel size. I was thinking about some...

Hi..

The phpBB that this site runs on is susceptible to a few 'glitches' like this.

If you log on and check the 'Remember me' or whatever the check box is under your password, it should solve the issue. Its to do with the BB setting a cookie on your browser.

Thanks Peter I'm used to dealing with old Landrovers so the heat/WD40/7lb hammer routine is well versed !! The clench bolt has resisted duck oil and a serious heating with a MAPP torch, and liberal abuse with an air impact wrench, so a hacksaw is the last resort ! I've yet to break one of these love...
