Re: Kiwi Seagull site

I cant see how 10 / 40 can help I'm sure it is thinner than SAE 30? Go to a mower shop they will still say to use 30 in your small engines

Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

I still have 4 transom brackets. I will keep one of them to turn into a new pattern as Hugs would like his Ali one back. The one I will keep is not that good due to shrink in places that are seen. I can fix that with filler on the pattern. There are no more "A's" but if more are required I...

Re: New forty plus owner, gearbox cover stuck?

The oil in the gearbox looks like capucchino once used that is quite normal, but it is still a good idea to clean it out and replace the oil with SAE 140 or SAE 90. Do not over fill the gear box! only fill it to the point where oil will cone out the filler hole when the engine is standing up. Scan_2...

Re: Kiwi Seagull site

So where did you find that? It may work ok if you have a nice new / tight gearbox but I think if I was to put it in one of mine it would only be in there for about 5 minutes :shock: Or if the engine was lying down in the back of the car (taking it to the water) I would need to put an oil pan under i...

Re: V-strut for Skeletal bracket

I will get all the bits boxed up over the weekend so I can find out the total costs and let people know by Skype or PM.
After all the parts are boxed then I will post up if there are any parts left.

Re: Tightening top nut

As long as the thread is clean and not all beaten up, I just hold the flywheel put a ring spanner on the nut and give the spanner a tap with a hammer to nip it just a little. In the book of words Chapter 5 page 65 #4 "install dome nut and tighten with wrench. After dome nut has been tightened s...

Re: Modifications - a good idea or not?

Hi if you were in Australia i would offer to swap you a long shaft motor for yours I will do a swap as long as he pays the shipping both ways from New Zealand! :mrgreen: If you can try a transom bracket before you change the motor.... once you have cut it, you have cut it and there is no going back!
