Re: Seagull SD restored

Almost there, very nice! But no Chrome or Nickel on the coppertop SD! Get the fuel cap, fuel pipe & the water pipes & fittings stripped, replace the fuel tap with a push, standard brass one, John has the much more correct brass L shaped transom screws, & the drive shaft tube needs re-pla...

Re: Found it in the River...

No sandpaper! that will reduce the diameter where the bearings run, could be fatal!

Polish with fine Scotch-Brite, using your electric drill, & don't starve it of the most viscous 2-stroke oil you can find when in use.

Crankshaft is made from EN40B & I think the wrist pin is the same.

Re: Found it in the River...

If you get that running with a minimum expenditure on new parts, we will have to come up with an award for you!

Getting this far without breaking anything is very impressive!

Re: UK roller-bearing forty gearbox

All Seagull lower units except for the 5 & 5R had bronze bearings, no Seagull manufactured lower units contained roller-bearings.

Re: 170 Throttle Cable

Collect all the bits of yours, & take to your nearest "old fashioned" bicycle shop, their mechanic if he's over 40, should be able to make you one in less than 10 minutes, it might not be the right color outer, but it should cost a lot less than the shipping & duty from the UK!

There was a chap called Waterbug on here that cast some, he was from New York State, try contacting him if Jeremy can't find you one.

Re: SD bronze piston conrod

I've never seen a war time or a post war Seagull with a bronze conrod, though the majority of pre-war Marstons had bronze rods, to say if was one of those I would need the little end & big end diameters & the exact center to center distance in mm.

Thanks for that Thcl, I think 31 out of 81, paints a very good picture & makes Michael's time even more impressive!

Not sure of the exact details, but I believe they were only permitted to run in the alcohol classes in the US.

Re: Seagull & Anzani race around Brownsea island Poole

That's a class A

I have a couple of petrol Anzani class B's that would break the speed limit before any cooling water would flow.

Seagull & Anzani race around Brownsea island Poole

This was pointed out to me by one of our members who found it on the Royal Motor yacht Club website, I know nothing about it at all, I don't even know if it's open to non members of the RYMC. It might pay to find out if there is a speed limit in force during the summer! EVENTS DATE / TIME: 29/06/201...
