BMB Outboard

Hi All, I have just purchased this BMB Outboard, along with a couple of others. This motor looks to be all there, except for a water pipe and a wire spring thing, that attaches beside the spark plug.

Re: Why Always This?

I have the same problem on my Ferrior (Inferrior) I made a plate and used the 4 flywheel bolt holes. Used plenty of heat, lots of soaking, several good hits, and a few new words. So far, the flywheel is still in place. Im hoping if I leave it for long enough, the outboard fairies will fix it for me....

Good job B.
Lucky it has been a fresh water engine, otherwise it would probably be badly corroded .

Cool old Outboard, and looks to be in really nice original condition. Getting hard to find a good one these days.

Re: Recent Purchase Villiers Outboard

Here are a couple of others I have, and they are all different.
I do have others, but am having trouble uploading the photos.
The Red outboard is a Clipper, and the Blue and Gold one is a Villager Stingray.

Re: Recent Purchase Villiers Outboard

Thanks for all the replies.

I do have some other Villiers outboards, so will try to get some more pics, for comparison.

Recent Purchase Villiers Outboard

I have just got this Outboard. I believe it is an Aussie Made Sea Tang, but I could be wrong. Its approx 1960, and has a Villiers 7F engine.
Can anybody positively Identify it ?
Thanks in advance,

Re: Johnson Seagull

Looks Good. Johnson Seagulls are getting hard to find these days. LOL
If you didn't know better, you would think it was original.
Good Job.

Re: Here we GROW again!

Good scoring S.
You may want to look for a suitable bicycle, to fit the mini motor to.
Then you can cruise the swap meets in style. LOL

Nice job on the restos .
It good to run them in a tank, and see and hear them running as they were supposed to.
Thats part of the reward, for all the time and effort.
look forward to seeing more of them.
Cheers

Re: Magazine stuff. Australia 1946-50

Firstly, was a 3HP Air Cooled Hurricane Powered unit, and later, a fully enclosed 5HP water cooled Hurrica...
