Re: Unrestored 102 SD (Naval?)

Re: SD Restoration

I've seen too many (later) SD's with the 'Seagull' air intake to believe all the SD's where fitted with the trumpets.

As long we don't have wartime pics (with time stamp) we are not sure of the air intakes, magnetos, brackets etc. used on (later) SD's.

Re: Loose bushes in crankcase

Thanks for posting the replies and the 'Why did they spin' explanation by Charles L.

So it wasn't a trick to provided 'Ze Germans' with captured unreliable outboards for operation 'Seelowe'.

I will go for the Loctite option but will keep the knurling tool idea in mind.

Thanks,

Re: "SEAGULL PATENT"

The bracket is for a Mark III F.B.E. (Folding Boat Equipment) raft used by the Royal Engineers during WWII.

This topic started with an air intake for sale :)

Loose bushes in crankcase

Two of my SDs have loose fit bushes in the crankcase.

Do I need new bushes or can they replaced with Loctite?

Thanks,

102 fixed gearbox to clutch conversion

The 102 spare parts list gives P/N 1374 for a fixed gear housing and P/N CL1374 for a clutch gear housing.

I can't see any difference in the gear housings I have.

Is it possible to converted a fixed gear box into a clutch gear box using a prop shaft, rear bush and wedge from a clutch gear box?

102 gear housing identification

I was sorting out my spare gear boxes and found two diferent types of 102 AC gear housings. One type has 9 cooling water inlet holes and the other type has 3 water inlet holes. All my SD and early 102 AC outboards have the gear housings with 9 water inlet holes. Are the 3 hole gear housings for late...

Maybe they removed the lanyard and jettisoned the Seagull :P

Re: A lot of work's gone into this one...

Sorry Charles,

A very nice shiny polished early 102 with the wrong starting pulley, flywheel cover, magneto base plate/coil, fuel pipe, water pipe, throttle lever, clutch lever, support lug/cap, V strut, prop and probably the cylinder.

Lower parts looks good apart from the prop.
