Re: szuwarek 364

Depends on how fast you want to go. I guess the 364 means 3.64 M ? My guess maybe 8 km/Hr.

Re: Leaking fuel cap

So Sikoflex as in boatbuilding material? For no gasoline problems you need Buna N rubber or Neoprene. I keep a small box of leather scraps for just that kind of emergency. When it's time to throw away an old pair of boots or other stuff with good leather in it, I just throw it in the box, mostly nic...

Re: Best way to clean a fuel tank

There are other ways to clean it that are less dangerous. Caustic soda = Lye you can still get it at the food store here, comes in crystals. For another method, remove fuel tap to protect filter on it. Remove fuel cap as well although can be left on. Put about a cup full of hard driveway gravel betw...

Re: Leaking fuel cap

If folks are going to use your neat trick, we hope they will soak the washer in fuel mix for 24 hrs, to make sure it does not start to go mushy. Do they use ethanol in motor fuel in the U.K.?

Re: Leaking fuel cap

The car parts places here carry a variety of gasket materials. Yours probably do as well. I like to use Victor Reinz brand JV 121 gasket material in the 1/32" thickness ( not sure what that would be in mm) for under fuel caps etc. very happy with it. It looks similar to ground cork but is synthetic....

Re: Leaking fuel cap

So it leaks at the fuel tank to cap joint as well as under the air inlet? This after the old gaskets were replaced with new gaskets? When you run your finger over the surfaces the gaskets bear against are the surfaces both smooth, any roughness anywhere in those areas? If there is roughness remove a...

Re: Gas Tank Cap needed in Surrey, B.C., Canada

I'm short of fuel caps myself, have lots of gear oil but the shipping is more than the oil is worth. You can use the regular 80/90 wt. oil, it will just leak out faster, put something under the gearbox and catch it then use it to refill. Some of my Seagulls leak badly some do not seem to leak at all...

Re: Loss of power in Century

You were very lucky if the cylinder did not get damaged. Looks to me like a piece of ring broke originally, started to dig a hole other pieces broke off, and it continued being run for quite a long time afte that. Maybe the previous owner was deaf. :( Need different piston and rings. Think I could s...

Re: Poll to illustrate buying prices of FV's, & FVP's.

IIRC the first year Seagulls were available in Canada or the U.S. was 1953, we see very few LS motors, but I have never seen or heard of an FV or FVP over this side. There have been no members in the AOMCI that have one to the best of my knowledge. We all know about the OB in the U.S. and there are ...
