Re: waitara river seagull race

I see alot of competitors have added an extra piece to the anti cavitation plate Yes I do this also. by doing that we can run the engine a lot higher in the water with out the prop grabbing air (as much) the higher the engine the less drag it has = the faster you go. Here are the overall results . ...

Re: Water testing 40+ and Silver Century

You will have to take the jets out.
Look at the number on the side of the jet. I think one will have 20 on it and the other 40 or 45. Im not sure what one is the 10:1 v the 20:1 I would need to look in the book for that (if it is in there I have not looked for that)

Re: Seagull Threads (Nuts and Bolts)

Took my boat and Silver Seagull out for a run today (first day off in 6 months) only to find it was not pumping water very well. Pulled the water intake pipe off to find the brass fitting that goes into the block half blocked with hard rust. The hole was still big enough for air and water from a hos...

Re: FREE!!!! Come get it....

So If I use my 20" that will give me the room for the fuel sitting on the floor. The food may be a problem. If there is a tone of fuel (and that is lighter than water) then with all the tins of beans and and beer to last 62 days that has to make at least 3 tone. Did you take the trade winds and tide...

Re: AMAL 2 Jet Carb- Threads

It is 28 TPI 55° 5.09mm over the high points of the threads.(on the one I looked at) I will have a look in my book and see if I can work it out better

It could be 7/32-28 BSF another way to check would be to see if a 4.60mm or #15 drill goes in the hole. I don't have one to check.

Re: RD 102 head

It could even be a cracked cylinder wall.

In any case take the cylinder off the crank case and have a look. You can get to the water ways at the same time.
