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.
Advance notice. John will be away sailing from June till the end of August! Last orders taken 31st May!!!! After that date I will passing customers over to British Seagull. Jackie there will be looking after you till I return. I will still be available on my mobile (07850 286607) as I sail round the UK, for technical queries, but no parts carried aboard!
You can keep track of my progress, or lack of it here.
This is the second half of my long sailing trip, to complete my round England, Wales and most of Scotland trip, 'Fiddling Around'.
So this summer, 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 above. Below is the link to the log of the first leg...
Full range of all Seagull parts available. Contact me for prices.
Saving Old Seagulls
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!
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.

Sadly now all gone, and I do not intend having more made, these took a long time to go off the shelf!
Not rare or unobtainable... (despite what you might read elsewhere!) and as far as I am aware only 3 types have ever existed, the original brass one, the bendy polythene ones of the 1950's and 60's, and the later rigid plastic ones that Seagull do now and of course I sell. £4.75, Yes that's all, not £9.99 as we have seen, beware the eBay shops!

I have a small number of these newly made in brass, with 'o' ring seal. For the collector refurbishing one of the older models £15.00 ....
Precision laser cut Whitworth/BSF sizes, also fits most spark plugs! Correct thickness to fit gearbox drain plugs too! Laser cut with 'SOS' and finished in polished stainless, no more rusting lumps of spanner in the bilge . I have knocked out the 'O' in the 'SOS' to tie to boat with lanyard!

Waterproof, blue, fabric outboard cover, with SOS on the side, has 'The best outboard motor in the world' printed on the top! Will fit all British Seagulls! P&P £3.50, overseas air mail .. I would have to get quote.
For standard shaft Seagull Forty's or Century's. Heavy blue material with long zipper, 'Best outboard in the World' on one end and the SOS logo on the sides. You just need to insert a length of old carpet inside to protect bag and outboard and it will save all the mess in the boot of the car plenty of room for tools and fuel can too. Strong carry handles.

Photo awaits.....Just in March 2018. Small Silver Seagull sticker and instructions for displaying on the back and top of the steel 3 pint tanks. £5.00
Can now be posted to some overseas destinations, but as the cost is prohibitive, £12 to EU countries, and some countries still ban oil by air, it is easier and cheaper to buy 5 litres from the agricultural merchant...
I also have 1litre bottles of Biodegradable oil, £12.50... same P&P £3.50 Go Green!
Used Brass 3 pint tanks. Bare tank, no leaks. All with 'authentic' dents! (slight ones) from £30.00. More heavily dented, for repairing, £15.00. Also cannot be posted overseas, for air safety reasons, sorry.

(Use RTV sealant with all head gaskets!)
Seagull HT lead and plug cap, £18.00 Supplied separate, the plug cap screws on, simply make a dent in the end of the lead, in the copper core and screw together, then remove to check screw is into copper and refit, this time with some waterproof sealant. Then it becomes waterproof!
Sorry the new Ex Dutch Army 102cc, 1940's piston
rings, coated with preservative, that sold in sets of 2, £5.00 a set,
have all gone.... Thanks to Jan and Jeroen in
Holland for salvaging these.
Metal one for the model 102, £20
QB rotors available again, British Seagull have had new ones made, £25.00
Caution! All plastic rotors must be slid onto clean and greased shafts by hand, do not hit with a spanner, they are brittle... to further assist, drop the rotor in your mates tea for 2 minutes before fitting, it will soften it slightly!

The Villiers air compensator that screws onto the front is no longer available new, but used ones available £15.00, while stocks last!
Please note the spares listed are just a fraction of parts kept here, I can supply almost every part for motors going back as far as the 1950's and sometimes beyond, prices are only shown here so you do not get ripped off elsewhere!
Postal conditions for overseas customers.
For overseas postage to destinations other than the EU, (except Greece and Italy), plus Australia, 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.
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!
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!)
