Re: Height adjusting collar

Did you get one?

I was wanting to adjust the depth of the motor to make for a more efficient and smoother ride. Also, c...

Re: 1963 LLS Century model 100 powerhead woes

The cheapest fix would be to take it into your local engineering workshop with the broken off bit & ask them to turn up a threaded inlet stub & ask them to drill & tap the cylinder to suit, almost invisible. Charles UK, what an excellent idea! Before you responded, I was contemplating boring out th...

Re: Spark issues with a 1981 British Seagull EFNR 110

Gentlemen, thanks for your responses and insight. Sorry, I have not responded sooner, but work and family have kept me pretty busy lately. I will look at the high tension lead and the cap on that wire. If, my cdi power pack is out who can I contact to find out pricing and shipping?? Again, thank you...

Re: Thank very much Phil!! I got the motor!!

Well I'm glad you were able to get this motor, David. It would be interesting to see some close up photos of the refill tank, especially the Seagull markings. Phil, This how I received the tank. http://i737.photobucket.com/albums/xx19/photocajun/British%20Seagull%20model%20110/EACECA67-58C5-452B-94...

Re: Thank very much Phil!! I got the motor!!

Jon, No, I have not got it running yet. Just put it in the garage today. It has a CDI ignition and it easily gets a spark at 1/4 inch with a open spark gap checker. I need to empty and clean the fuel tank, it has some old fuel mix in there. The owner said everything was original except the fuel hose...

Re: Hot Seagull...

Mercurys run hotter as they have a thermostat, Seagull's don't have that luxury. Wasn't this motor stopping because it was too hot? Can owners tell us how hot their crankcases are running, so that we can arrive at an average range. Running a 1964 40 plus in barrel. After running 5min. Temp of the c...

Re: Is my seagull overheating??

Yes Sir, 10:1 is in that tank and I will never lean it out. My understanding it needs to 10:1 for lubrication, keeping it cooler and also to help seal the crankcase.

1650bullet, phil , Vic, thanks guys you are starting to make me feel easier about running the old dear!!
