New Seagull parts for sale.

It's time I started to clear some space, by selling some of the new Seagull parts I've collected over the last 25 years, that I won't live long enough to use, as it would cause me great distress if they ended up as land fill. New 170 crankshafts, no conrods. New Century crankshafts, might have a cou...

Re: anyone looking for 297 seagulls?

I've seen those before Andrew, I thought there were more than that. If they are part of the ones I looked at, they are part of the estate of a very nice Kiwi gentleman, I didn't know he'd gone. Looking at the rest of the pics, they are the same ones, I recognise the building. Just noticed the ladies...

Re: Another "new" in box seagull

That's a very late date for a Villiers carbed EFPC, strange.

Re: A little gift

Thanks Rennie, this is an example of a wartime bracket that has been modified for use on a transom, but has a side mount thrust block, but would work on a conventional gunnel.

Hugo if you see this can you post a pic of of an original one.

Re: A little gift

No choke just a 2" trumpet, chromed or bare brass. There are pics on here of wartime side mount brackets but they were designed for specific military boats so need modification to work on modern gunnel & transom styles. Remember there were no 2-stroke oils available pre 1950, apart from racing casto...

Re: Moment of weakness

I had a firm rule nothing American then you see a Sea Fury looking at you from the corner of a shelf, then there's another behind it. Then you notice a couple of Clarkes have snuck in, that only need a little bit of work, but hardly take up any room, & your still lusting for a 20H, then you realise ...

Re: Moment of weakness

It's a bit embarrassing when you compare the level of engineering technology in an American outboard costing $127 with the UK equivalent in 1939.

A Marston OP cost $150.!

Moment of weakness

Even though I said "I wasn't going to buy any more motors until I'd made some space by selling some", I broke my new years resolution or was it the year before lasts. I bought one of these. https://p2.liveauctioneers.com/406/28942/11180145_1_l.jpg Not this Evinrude Zephyr but a less shiny one from 1...

Re: Is this the worlds most expensive outboard?

I agree but Yamatos don't raise your pulse until you start one on the back of a boat, whereas Anzani, Konig, Carniti racers will do that while sitting on the stand!

Is this the worlds most expensive outboard?

https://hatchwellantiques.co.uk/20th-century/anzani-pilot-outboard-motor-detail I must be more stupid than I look, I gave one of these away! Or perhaps it's this one. https://hatchwellantiques.co.uk/20th-century/miscellaneous/anzani-hydroplane-outboard-motor-detail I wonder what a class B is worth. ...

That poses the question, why is it black? & what about the water in the water jacket.

Re: Century 100 restoration.

That would leave signs of copper sulphate, what colour is that?

I've never seen a gasket like that.

Well done, I'm enjoying this thread!
