Dam I hate being right.

Re: Molassas and spark plug Question

A while ago I posted a thread on using molasses on a block. Worked like a charm. While working with it my nose taught me a lesson. We have here a product called 'rust stop' which "fixes" rust. I have used it on rust spots on my truck and it did just that prevented the spread of rust. While working w...

Re: Compression Test Gear?

H-A thanks email sent. Anyone with any British Seagull clothing know what the 'made in' tag says? Basically I'd like to like British Seagull circa 2013 but when I see a 50 dollar t-shirt I wonder if it was made for pennies somewhere by slaves or was it spun from fine scotch wool and knitted by jovia...

Re: Compression Test Gear?

Charles since you bring up the formidable track record, I am still waiting to hear about where British Seagull currently manufactures parts? Last time I asked you gave a 'fanciful' story about some piece work conducted in a kitchen by a haggard house wife? As a 'formaidable' historian surely you und...

Re: translocation

Hmmmm 1000s of tons of protien an endless stream of boat people showing up hungry seems like a no brainer to me. Funny that the 'discomfort' of those in gov is the big problem.

Re: Compression Test Gear?

I think we read on here pretty frequently that any 40 with over 55 PSI will run well and be satisfactory? Neat that RCweaver's caculations figure out to the same #. I do not think he was trying to raise stakes on bets nor was he trying to say that seagulls do not ever measure over 55 PSI compression...

Re: 102 advice please (WC 385 R6)

You should have to slots cut into the bottom of the transom mount, You can then use a couple of screws to hold it in place. I would not go chiseling away on the back of a transom :shock: .You can easily fill in the 2 screw holes if need be. No I should not have. I have twin 40s mounted onto thier o...

Re: General opinions - whats a seagull worth?

I would assume the 102 would be alot more powerful and confidence inspiring in a wind, current etc. The only real solution is to buy a nice wipac equipped 40 and try it. Hold out for a minty one. I cannot see oarlock/row lock sockets on your boat so maybe you have real need for a 'back up' motor.

Re: 102 advice please (WC 385 R6)

Rob, One thing you can do to improve the moutning arrangement, and I encourage this big time, is to trace the transom mount (outboard side) onto that plank. once traced take a chisel and hammer and create a slight inlet. This will gaurentee that the mount wont kick off laterally with out needing to ...

Re: General opinions - whats a seagull worth?

Phil has it spot on for Canada east or west. 100 dollar runners sell in about a month, 50 dollar ones in a couple days and over 150 nothing sells.
