Re: Rare (?) Early Series Forty

LM29462, which was on Gumtree has now been sold, presumably along with the Yamaha and the LLS.
I hope the LM doesn't disappear. Is anybody on here the new owner?

Re: Rare (?) Early Series Forty

Seagull nomenclature. When I started asking what the model numbers stood for, most of the comments were based on what the outboards were being called from a marketing/useage point of view. So there was no real explanation for the models such as the LS, SJM and SJP that I was interested in. Charles P...

Re: Rare (?) Early Series Forty

John, The serial number is stated by the owner to be LM29462. Visually it looks, as far as one can tell from the photos complete and goodish. This LM is for sale on Gumtree in Kingsteignton , Devon in a package of two other outboards. The other two are an LLS and a Yamaha. According to the owner it ...

Re: Rare (?) Early Series Forty

Thanks John,

It appears that it really is an LM! The serial number that he stated is not correct, but the seller is going to let me know the correct number. I suspect the first three numbers are 294, with a couple more after that.
Thanks a lot for letting me know.

Re: Rare (?) Early Series Forty

Thanks Jacob,

I wish I had seen that. I am very keen on recording as many Early Series Forty outboards as I can, so that the information can be collated and more can be found out about this series. If you see another one, let me know! Thanks.

Re: Rare (?) Early Series Forty

Thanks John. I wasn't able to find it on e bay, but it doesn't matter, as I have got sufficient info on it.
I did bump into FVP6317, which is for sale in Oban. It was previously on e bay in December 2018.

Re: Rare (?) Early Series Forty

Jacob,
Thanks for your interesting observation about the one on facebook.
Was it advertised as an LM, or did you find out its serial number? Was it a matter of you visually identifying it as an LM, without knowing its serial number?

Re: Little forty style choke

Adrian, Well spotted. That is just the part I need for my Little Model Forty, F201! Although the whole carb is what I am after. Did you ask the vendor whether he had any other relevant carb bits, or indeed the complete carb that this choke mechanism came off? I have a casting like that one that you ...

Re: Crankcases and Crankshafts

Pinger, John is obviously the person to answer your question in detail, about whether all series 40s have a two bolt fixing. But, the simply answer is no. I know that the Early Series Forty ie the F,FV, FVP, LS and LM produced in 1949 to 1957, had four studs from the crankcase through the block to t...

Re: Rare (?) Early Series Forty

Hi John, Its got the same tank as later LSs ie with the sharper edge rads compared to the early LSs. It has a brass 10" tiller as per the LS. It will be like your LS30524. How is yr FV? Hi Adrain, Are you sure it was an LM on e bay? With a replacement 'modern' head it looks like a later FV. Yes...

Rare (?) Early Series Forty

BS records indicate that approx. 38243 off Early Series Forty engines of the range F, FV, FVP, LM and LS were produced. However the really odd thing is that I am only aware of one production LM - and that is LM29941, which is in my garage. The LM is quite simply an LS with the smaller 10:21 gearbox ...

Re: SJM 521R7

Martin, The transom bracket on the left would have probably, I believe been nickel plated. Most, if not all of these smaller 4" ones were plated. The engine support lug, which it has been fitted to, was introduced at serial number 10000. So that would indicate it was fitted to FV (and possibly ...
