The place to buy British Seagull spare parts!

To obtain parts, first you need to have identified your motor This link will take you to pages that will help. Try checking the engine number against the list. I would like to know the number when you telephone me.

I have had to cancel my sailing trip this year, to complete my round England, Wales and most of Scotland trip, 'Fiddling Around'. Have to have another op for kidney stones.... they missed one!

Sailing trip postponed for a year...

So next year, hopefully, 2018, British Seagull will be taking my emails and dealing with spares, as last time,  but I will be available by mobile for advice.  If you know you are going to want a few bits, get in before then. Seagull can do most parts but not my s/s parts, specials etc., nor old used parts.

As before, you will be able to keep track of my progress, or lack of it, via the link   below, click the logo.


Full range of all Seagull parts available. Contact me for prices.

In addition to normal parts I have remanufactured hard to get parts and some in s/s.  I also keep a stock of used parts, especially where castings and the like are no longer available.

Below are a sample of prices, please contact me for any part not here and I will give you prices.  I normally keep all these parts and more, but due to the large demand sometimes I maybe out of stock awaiting delivery, supply etc.

None of these parts include P&P, as owners often put together a wish list of parts. Minimum P&P £1.50, but charges generally kept as low as I can. I have added a few sample P&P prices for guidance.

Have added a link to a converter so you can compare prices in your part of the world!

Thanks to Hans for this suggestion.

This is just a selection, as a price guide, virtually every part stocked! Too many to list!

but....

Villiers ignition coils... 

Speak to George at www.villiersparts.co.uk

He is the only man to sell these newly made ones, any others seen for sale are old stock and very suspect..  they can fail just sat on the shelf, they maybe are good for 20 years only.... the shellac insulation on the old ones was biodegradable. and as the last ones were made in 1967..... Not surprising I hear of Villiers coil failures almost every day.

Postal conditions for overseas customers.

 

For overseas postage to destinations other than the EU, (except Greece and Italy), plus Australia, Canada, New Zealand and a few other countries where the postal services have an excellent reputation, I send normal air mail Other places I now insist on tracked postage, at extra expense, and can take no responsibility for non arrival of parts.  I will supply tracking details and customers must trace and seek their own compensation if a parcel fails to arrive.  This unhappy situation has been forced on me because a customer claimed he failed to receive a parcel in South Africa and claimed his money back from PayPal, even though I had proof of posting etc.  I cannot afford to give spares away for free.

 



I will try to answer queries by e-mail of course, but I might ask you to speak to me on the phone to positively identify your motor. There are quite a lot of motors that do not have the correct engine numbers, due to the swapping of parts so common with these engines. This causes all sorts of problems, as there are carburettor and ign differences that I should be able to identify from your number, so please forgive me if I ask silly questions about your motor.

 

I work from home in the heart of the Dengie peninsular, Essex. 99% of my customers deal with me by post.  But if you can find Tillingham and want to call in, give me a ring, I am just south east of the village.

map of tillingham

I can normally supply most parts new, some hard to get parts, that are out of production, can sometimes be sourced second hand. I try to keep a fair stock of usable old part you might have to clean them up your selves though!

Mail or phone me for parts I will give you an e-mail link for online payment, or you can pay by cheque by post

PayPal payments accepted!   I send out a PayPal invoice link and using this you can pay with any credit or debit card securely on line. (Or a PayPal account!).

This means you can pay using major credit cards, and from overseas as well.

(For UK customers I still accept cheques and P.O.'s, contact me for address and postage prices.)

 

I will send your parts by first class mail, or if over weight, by Parcel Force.  My P&P prices are some of the cheapest you will find.

You will have to forgive me if you do not get your parts back inside 24 hours, I only get one post a day here, and that is often too late for me to catch the post out locally!

To get details of what I do in the way of servicing, and when I undertake it, please refer to the 'Scale Of Charges' page. You might also find the 'Retail   Outlet' page useful.

 

 

  

 

    

If I am not answering the phone, this might give you a clue to where I might be given half a chance!  Out sailing!!

Please look through the 'FAQ' page first, you might find what you need there. 

Try also the 'I. D. your British Seagull' pages, before mailing queries to me, as I now have to spend much time answering your e-mails! That, of course, keeps me from the workshop! UK queries may be better by phone, as I can ask you those extra little questions that might solve a problem easier. (Like why your 102 has a century plus gearbox!)
