Re: Latest edition to the shed.

All of Seagull's production motors had to pass a test tank test, to ensure there were no faults before number stamping & packing, any small crankcase leaks were fixed during the test with the use of a center punch in the area where the bubbles were forming!

Major leaks required a new crankcase.

Can somebody post a picture of the underside of the cap to illustrate the shape of the brass washers (splash guards) on an original cap.

Re: Marston adverts

All Seagulls have exhaust back pressure holes, it was only the pre 1937 cast exhaust models had the provision for closing these vents to keep the exhaust noise down!

The straight exhaust models used the tell tail water to provide the same function.

Re: Retirement Project

That cable tie on the tiller arm will probably kink the throttle cable if the tiller arm is raised vertical!

Re: Retirement Project

Can you take a picture of the far bank, it looks a bit like Mangroves, flies & mossies over there.

Saffer check your pictures to see if it's got a slide exhaust vent or a tennis racquet.

Re: marston at Black Country Museum

If it's the same one I surveyed 10 years ago it should be either OA 163 or 168 (poor writing in the notes).

On reflection it's not the same one, that tank logo doesn't look Marston at all & the one I saw wasn't a Special.
