Re: Oh Dear! What have I done.

I think that it is an SJM. Probably from the early/mid 1960s The lack of any ident stamping would suggest to me that it has been built up from a spare crankcase by an individual or an agent.

Re: New purchase

Well done for getting an FVP.

Could you post a photo of it when you receive it. Do you know its serial number? If not please let us know when you receive it.
Thanks.

Re: Transom Bracket Types

Good idea Charles. So, as a start:- In respect of just the Early Forty Series, I have described the three different types in my Notes, which accompany the Data List of the Early Series Forty Engines. I wrote in those Notes:- There were three different types of Transom Brackets:- The early 4” (engage...

Re: Bought Another One

Hi Raya,
Is it really true that KLG plug caps were the choice of BS? What is the evidence for this? I presume that you are referring to the period around 1950 ish.

There is some evidence, certainly not conclusive, that the brown Champion plug cap was used by BS around 1947/8/9 ish.

FV5141 with its M1361 coil is still going strong. Here is a photo of it doing what it was designed for - pushing a dinghy along. This was last week on the Yealm estuary in South Devon, UK.

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 ...
