FVP SPARES

Post by seagull101 » Thu Jul 04, 2019 11:33 am

Hi all,

Have this very sad and knackered FVP here. It’s not worth fixing so I’m going to break it. Most of the powerhead is destroyed, wrong gearbox but I have the right one in bits. Correct smaller carb, good ignition, good prop, round tank. Let me know what your needing. Can post parts anywhere.

Complete too, shame to break it. What’s wrong with it?

Hi Jacob,
Is that FVP5959?
Yes, I agree it is a shame to split it, but I am reluctant to persuade somebody to spend time and money rebuilding an early 40.
In an ideal world every early 40 would be rebuilt and used. I have done my bit in that direction! But realistically that is not going to happen. Perhaps emphasis ought to be on the very early F and FVs. How many people are sitting on an F or an FV and not progressing their restoration and use? I am guilty of that.

However, if you are going to split it, I would be interested in acquiring the engine support lug.

Hi Jacob,
Sometimes it is best to concentrate on fewer projects. I wish I could learn that lesson!
Getting rid of unwanted spares is probably a good idea. I presume that LS crankcase assy is yours? I hope it goes to a good home.
There are a couple of bits off FVP5959 that i would like (only if you are going to split it). They are the bronze water pump rotor and the transom bracket - is it complte with the security bar?

it needs a block, head and cases. Not worth fixing.

Jeremy, Engine lug, and pump housing are all yours, PM me.

Transom is cracked sadly but still has the security bar and the cotton reels if your interested?
