Re: Britannia ID Help

If I can find a good photo of the original tiller I can sandcast a replacement Do you do casting yourself or get someone to do them for you? If you cast yourself (like I do) and your keen enough have a go at making a new part. After all if it is for yourself time is not an issue. Good luck with it ...

Numbers on the crank

Had anyone seen numbers on the crank like this before?

IMG_3120.jpg


Is it a part number or some other form of I.D.
I think is was put in there when it was made.
Tried a file on it.... the file didn't even look at it, It's hard!

Any ideas?

Re: Throttle cable doesn't fit

Welcome to the funny farm!

Can you remove the the bit off the end of the new cable? it may be the difference between Imperial and metric?

Others may be able to help better.

Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

That's going to hit your water pump housing!


I don't think the water pump housing is the problem..... it's the spark plug the sticks out too far! :lol:

Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

All moulded up and ready to go! Don't know when they will get poured and I still don't know what the cost will be. I have 10 transom brackets and 3 A brackets.

Re: Restoring a Marston OA

I wonder if nudge could cast a Marston cyclinder in alluminium? Show only of course, with no piston or con rod!


You got one to use as a pattern?

Trouble is, then no OA's get broken for spares!

I do hear what you are saying.... but it would be good for a play.

Re: Silver century block

Thanks Jacob,
That makes at least 5 patterns, I was told that there may have been 6 (how much truth is another thing)
So far I have found my engine with #4 on the block works the best. Maybee I need to work out the port timing.
