Re: The Great Annual Waikato River Seagull Outboard Regatta

It All your fault, now we are back in lockdown! (in Auckland ) you had to open your mouth and use the "C" word.

I hope we don't get locked down Easter weekend like last year, I will forget what it all looked like.

Re: 170 con rod specs

That bronze cap should last a life time, and it saves having to put a bearing shell in it.
looks like the bush you put in the small end has a smaller hole than the original one? Or is it just a thicker bushing.

Re: KSR1100

Were the centres in both ends of the crankshaft there for checking the shaft or were they for centring that end of the crank with the centre on the inner face of the crank web for main bearing grinding & big end pin hole location,
That is a very good point Charles, One I did not think of.

Re: HSD12704.L

What cunning plan re the prop?

It could be sent to me and I can cast a new one.

I can use the old one as a pattern to make a new one even if one blade is missing.

Re: Flywheel Removal

And now you know why Not to use a puller.... ever!
