Re: eBay SD

It’s in my backyard too, however I’m overseas working so one less bidder...

Prices of good SDs seem to be a bit up and down nowadays, I’ve seen one go for over £500 another for less then £100.

Re: Sad Death of our Webmaster

That’s awful news, and a terrible shock! RIP Peter who has part of this community for many years. Condolences to his wife and family, and my thoughts are with them. Perhaps we should do something from all forum members?

Re: Britannia ID Help

I've now been able to get at my spares engine, and removed the the tiller mount with throttle linkage if you still need one?

Re: Anyone seen one of these fuel tanks before?

I get the point about the cap and transfer giving it an authentic "Look" but if these had been factory surely they would have made a substantial batch, and we would of seen these before. The tank does not look mass produced at all, more like home made?

Re: Anyone seen one of these fuel tanks before?

I suspect that’s not a seagull tank, maybe lawnmower or stationary engine?

Re: Saga of the TC 102

Its quite normal for water flow to reduce to very little when the engine is idling. Also when running in a tank, if a prop is fitted the water will become very aerated, and thus water flow into the inlet becomes hugely reduced.

So when running in a tank its much better to run in neutral.

Re: Marston 340cc Twin

So it is the same engine that features on the SOS website. So not a new find, just the same engine re-emerging. 8)

Re: Marston 340cc Twin

Is that the same engine that is shown on the SOs web site I wonder? It was last seen in that area of the US. I believe only 4 known to exist. Interesting to see the pics for sure.
