Re: Clynder head

Glenn Are you saying the cylinder head in the top left of Tam's picture was the one that gave you 50lbs compression & that the one on the top right was 70lbs? As according to all my notes, the top left one was on the LLS & a few of the early CPC series, it was replaced by the top right one, ...

Re: FREE!!!! Come get it....

My understanding of those figures are that at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle you should get 5.75 hours running from 1 gallon of fuel. That give you a fuel consumption figure of about 4.25 Imperial gallons for 24 hours running at less than 3/4 throttle. Assuming you can achieve 4 knots at 3/4 throttle that woul...

Re: Anyone seen one of these fuel tanks before?

It looked like a very big press job to me, but I wouldn't bet on that. You must work with sheet metal guys Oyster, show them the pictures & see how they think it was made. I can see how the basic shape could be made with a fly press & a few bits of press tooling & several hours welding, ...

I'm so sorry!

I'm blaming that dreadful gender assignment error on "old timers disease"!

I sincerely hope I didn't distress too many of our readers.

Re: FREE!!!! Come get it....

Did you mean gallons/hour or gallons/day? Would a 40+ be the most suitable Seagull, I'd think about a Curlew, 64cc, a clutch, 25:1, way better miles/gallon, quieter & as much oomph as a Century. ( a Curlew uses a Model 75 Century lower unit & prop & spins them 500+ engine revs faster) . ...

Re: Anyone seen one of these fuel tanks before?

How many lawnmowers & stationary engines had vertical crankshafts?

The water slide label makes it 50's or early 60's, as does the fuel cap (Jeremy what does your research suggest & is it an LS?)

There is a lot pointing to an "it could be".

Anyone seen one of these fuel tanks before?

I was sent an email a few days ago. asking if I'd ever seen one of these tanks, & was it a Seagull product?

You've got a boat, why not go & get it?

You could test it on the return journey.

It's only just a bit over 11,000 Km!

You could refuel in Hawaii.

Re: Seagulls, Life and everything else.

Your starting to frighten me Tam! Your grandchildren are trained to use spanners & are aware of the benefits of penetrating oils. I think we'll have to get Blondie to pledge some mythical money for the Hadrian's Wall refurb fund, though I hear some of your country men are very large contributors...

I ultrasonic pistons when they're in a bit of a state like yours, with good results, in white spirit or diesel, just don't let it warm up too much.

Re: 170 Postmortem

Andrew Here are pictures of some 170 rods I have in my rod drawer. Rod A is a rod I removed from a running 170 that I thought I ought to check, no noise no play, but bent & showing major signs of heat distress with some slight signs of scaring on the bearing surfaces both sides, note there is a ...
