Re: Cylinder Head Stamp

I've never seen one, I'd guess at this being home done. The number wasn't stamped on the crankcase at Seagull until the unit passed through the full test tank tests, the number was taken from the build book & then the crankcase was stamped & the motor went off to packing, we believe the fuel...

Re: Seagull 170
