It Seems to Be True!

Postby Journeyman » Thu Oct 11, 2018 8:30 pm

It had to happen, went away for a few days holiday leaving the Standard Shaft Seagull Century in the shed.
When I got home and opened up the shed there appeared a second Seagull. this one is a long shaft Century Plus, it’s true they do breed if left alone!

Here is a photo of the first one from 1957, bought as a non runner it started Second pull!

This is the second one from 1964 bought as a runner it refused to start!
Checked it out and found that the Secondary windings on the Coil were open circuit. So bought a new coil from George of Villiers parts, installed that and it started third pull. It now starts first pull! Also had to back flush with a hose to get the cooling water to discharge.

Will now completely strip and check the Century Plus and put it into good order while continuing to use the Century as is.

Just took a leaflet out of the letterbox, saying that there's no reason I can't have good sex at 65.

Brilliant - because I live at no. 49 so it's not far to walk home afterwards!
