Re: Anzani Unitwin Prop

Is this a vacuum prop & do you know the pitch & diameter?

I'm going to visit a chap in a couple of weeks, who might have one, but I need to ensure I pick up the right one!

Re: Removing a fuel line [Forty Plus]

If you hold the fuel tap with the smooth jaws of an adjustable spanner you will be less likely to leave marks on the fuel tap body from the pliers serrated jaws.

Re: Gorgeous SD

I looked at those but weren't they taken when you first got it, you must have done something to it since then.

Black brass oval with seagull end caps.

But quite a few bits give the impression it's older than the serial number.

Re: Anyone seen one of these fuel tanks before?

Cookie can you thank the new owner on our behalf, for the pictures!

Can you also ask him, if he takes the tank off, for some pictures of the hold-down bolts & the thread pattern & size, so we can see if they were factory or it's been modified since.

This is an interesting riddle we've been posed.

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, up to ar...

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, but the corn...
