Re: Amal 416 fuel banjo CAD?

It's not really a shape that lends it's self to 3D printing & if it fails you've got petrol running onto hot parts, often we don't look at the motor until it sounds different. I believe there are brass ones about, try John. You've got this problem because even injection moulded plastic ones, don't l...

Re: One for the kids

Sandro your English is a lot better than our Italian.

Andrew don't you think your kids might be a little young for a motorised dingy, in 4 minutes they could be half a mile away!

Mind you there's a lot of benefits to a quiet life, perhaps the oars should be fastened to the hull.

Re: The Great Annual Waikato River Seagull Outboard Regatta

Nice pictures thanks Cam!

It would have helped me a lot if the pictures had names underneath them, I only could've named a couple entrants, & that was by their boats, Mr Murray.

Is it my imagination or is everybody getting older.

Re: 1/4 scale

Adrian we've looked into that, long & hard, a working cylinder is a major task. 5 sand cores & the required moulds. Cast iron liner with all the ports in the right location, & the integral base retaining flange & a very complicated multi part core. And several fixtures for machining the base, bore, ...

Re: Marston Twin

There might be more than that, but many Marston owners don't want their treasures all over the internet.

Re: Marston Twin

Perhaps a look at the SOS main pages & then a read through the Marston Seagull page, might answer your questions.

Re: The Great Annual Waikato River Seagull Outboard Regatta

Here's a mail I got yesterday with a link to a nice film. Hi Seagull Lovers, In 2019 Rach and I had a great time doing this regatta, unfortunately we now live in Perth, Australia so can't make it this year :-( Good luck with the 2021 event, and if anyone has a friend who is unsure, tell them if two ...

Re: The Great Annual Waikato River Seagull Outboard Regatta

One thing the Kiwi's can do is organise a Seagull regatta, they might be very poor at organising a Pandemic, I think it was only 3 infections of Covid last month, very poor! We (the Pommes) scored more than 200,000, that's a proper score! I think this is their way of eliminating the competition! Sor...

Re: Mks 2 and 3 ignitions voltage

Interesting fuel taps where did they come from?

So if it sparks at A can we assume 10 KVA, if B = 20 KVA, C = 30 KVA, 40 KVA, isn't that what I implied?

Most owners don't fasten the throttle cable to the tiller arm as you run the risk of kinking the cable outer.

Re: Mks 2 and 3 ignitions voltage

I thought that was the purpose of these devices, that you set the gap small, test you get a spark, open the gap in increments until no spark, then return to the last setting where there was a good spark, should gives the voltage at starting revs, I think you'll find a chart in the instructions givin...
