Oh Dear! What have I done.

Outboard 009.jpg Well I have bought another Forty, this one does not have an engine number but the crank case on a superficial look resembles the one on my 1967 FP 40 Plus. The new one has a Featherweight/Minor gear box and a Villiers fly wheel instead of the Wipac on the 1967, it also has a bronze...

Re: Latest edition to the shed.

Thanks for that Charles, good to know it’s an acceptable fix and confirmation that HA knows what he is talking about, though I never doubted him. :) At the moment it is slathered with some sort of filler from the previous owner, he did say there was a problem and that’s why he had bought a spare cra...

Re: Latest edition to the shed.

Thanks HA it’s good to know it’s a common problem. There was a bucket of old spares with it, including a broken off tiller end (though not the tiller) so that is probably what happened. I have a good cast table on a saw that I use as a surface plate so no need to annoy the Chief Cook! She gets annoy...

Re: Latest edition to the shed.

A few checks and she fire up third pull and pumped water well right down to tick over. Outboard 008.jpg Unfortunately she is not very happy with starting up again when warm, it took quite a few pulls with her not quite catching until she finally got running. This is so different to my other two whic...

More when I do some ...

Hi yes, sounds like a great area to explore with a Seagull how far up the rivers are you allowed to go with a boat? Passage East is the furthest I’ve been, have alw...

Re: 40 minus will not start

Back in the day if you had a National Licence a lot of manufacturers would service their components for free, this included Lodge. Toward the end of the season you could hand your plugs to a Rep or send your plugs to them. They removed the side electrode, cleaned the plug fitted a new electrode and ...
