Re: Anyone with spare time?

I saw one of those sell 3 weeks ago, 1927/28 restored Elto speedster for about an 1/8 of that.

Re: Size matters

If you have a look at Jeremy's data sheets/key for the register on the main site pages, you will find tiller lengths in the tiller column if I remember right.

Re: waitara river seagull race

Can't say too much, those Kiwi racers are too sharp (hope that's not too racist, note I didn't say Kiwi Gentlemen that would have been gender something or other).

There're taking the family with them & winning races!

Re: waitara river seagull race

Replace the water pump gasket with a 3mm aluminium plate , make the holes the same size & location as the gasket, use RTV to seal it.

Make it giant to start with, you can always make it smaller.

I fold the wing tips down as a skeg/stiffener.

Re: Box of Bits

The girlfriend bought me a bag of marbles for my birthday, & that says it all!

That's a "barge pusher" lower unit, the reason for the request was it looked like a 3.5 : 1 box but with a clutch & that couldn't be right.

Re: Box of Bits

Can you post pictures of the lower unit around the propshaft area.

Is that a 3.5 : 1 box?

Or have I lost it?

Re: OP463 on ebay

OOOPS!

British Seagull on the plug cap rather gives the game away, can't see the baseplate fitting/connector as they were different.

This one is new to me & the register, & he's done quite a nice job, I'm not comfortable with tearing some unknown vendors Seagull to bits.

Re: OP463 on ebay

Try fuel tank, fuel cap, petrol tap, fuel tank straps, fuel tank support bracket, fuel tank bracket bolts, carb, air intake, cylinder, throttle lever, tiller arm & propeller. Without the JM number we can't be sure it's the original ignition & I'd also like to see the drive shaft. The only parts we c...

Re: OP463 on ebay

The one that sold a couple of weeks ago was 90% of an OP, whereas this one is only about 60% without knowing the ignition number.
