Re: Water intake.

It is worth noting that with gearbox used on the LS initially had 2 water inlet holes. This was changed to 3 holes later - possibly sometime around 1953 or it might have been 1954. Presumably BS thought it was advantageous to make this change. Although the change might have been made to reduce the c...

Re: SJM 521R7

Thanks Charles, I am up early this morning (obviously not enough Rioja!), as I will be on my way very shortly to the coast for a boating session. FV5141 and FV3048 are in the boot of the car to be used on my dinghy. I know that I do not have to convince you, that these FVs are the most useable old S...

Re: SJM 521R7

I don't know when the plastic cotton reel was superseded by the thrust block and whether that was initially in plastic or aluminium. They are obviously so easy to change, along with the transom bracket itself, so swapping bits around make life difficult. However Charles L, you are wrong in suggestin...

Re: Gear oil and two stroke

John, Thanks for your good feedback on my suggestion for using a V Ring seal. As you say - not a cure, but a big help. Exactly so. I hope it will encourage others to fit them. It can hardly be cheaper or easier. Charles, As the moderator and the man who has to approve any suggested technical changes...

Re: Gear oil and two stroke

Charles, As I said in my post, the oil capacity of the (early) 10:21 gearbox is about 70ml. That is 14 fills from a litre, so even cheaper than you indicated. Although this can be further reduced, if one is so inclined, by letting the drained oil stand for a long period and then reusing the top oil ...

Re: Gear oil and two stroke

croweater, John, I am really pleased that the V Ring Seal, which I highlighted here as possibly much more effective than the standard soft washer/dirt seal in reducing oil leakage. How is yr LSs? Have you fitted a V Ring Seal to it? Maybe other people have experience of them? I have fitted them to m...

i would like to make a record of the serial numbers on the crank cases, so would be grateful if you could make a note those down here.

Thanks.

Re: LS33642

Thanks John for that info ref the 3 inlet holes. There is no hurry for the flywheel date. Yes, I get the impression that these Early Series Forty are quieter than later ones. They have only one hole in the exhaust pipe, with the FVs having a smaller hole than the LS. Whether this is the reason for t...

Re: Nuts and Bolts

Jacob, are you trying to obtain 1/4" BSF set screws just like the originals? These have a specific head design, which has a name, but I have forgotten what they are called. Does anybody know what the name is? This will help Jacob to find the original looking set screws.

Re: Cylinder Base and Head Joints...early models

I have seen similar information previously, but not so highly specific and so very clear. So it is very interesting to see that. My belief is that these Bostik sealants were chosen to prevent cooling water from coming into contact with the aluminium head and the aluminium crankcase. This was absolut...

Re: LS33642

John, It looks a really nice not mucked around late LS. I have added the details onto the list of Early Series Forty. Does it have the later 3 inlet hole gearbox? If you have taken the flywheel cover, what is the date of the flywheel? These early 40s are really very useable outboards. My preference ...

Re: Putting up a real fight!!!

With regard to the cylinder head removal, could I ask why do you want to remove it? You could consider running the engine and then decide if it really needs to be removed. But if you really do want to remove it and there appears to be corrosion products between the studs and the head, I have resolve...

Re: Folding Seagull

I am intrigued. Did the Evinrude 'fold' to reduce the overall length, or was it possible to just quickly break it into two parts? I can see that there are advantages in doing so for storage or transport in a car or boat. An Early Series Forty can quickly become two parts (intentionally or accidental...
