Re: Which of the Bargepusher props did the HSD wear?

Thanks for the heads up on the inaccuracies of the list Charles. I guess it is never good when you see a lot of "quotation marks/inverted commas" on a list. If the person who constructed the list couldn't be bothered to type out the words, perhaps there was not much attention to detail when it came ...

Re: Which of the Bargepusher props did the HSD wear?

I don't know Charles, Thanks for pointing it out though. I only copy and pasted from the main SOS website, perhaps there is a mistake on there or perhaps although the drawing is from 1946 it is a prototype drawing of a later model. http://www.saving-old-seagulls.co.uk/i_d_your_seagull/i_d_letters.ht...

Re: Which of the Bargepusher props did the HSD wear?

Here is a line drawing of a Model 102 with a date of 3rd of March 1946 from the main SOS site provided to John Williams by Roy Tighe. That is about as much as I can contribute to the debate. As the line drawing is in side profile, I'll have to guess a bow tie two bladed prop! http://www.saving-old-s...

Re: Model 55 no spark issue

OK, ta. Figured it would mean replacement of the CDI unit. Will order one from John. . My advice might be a bit late as you may have already placed your order. I came across a similar problem with dodgy ht lead on my electronic ignition 102. Instead of replacing complete unit I cut out the damaged ...

Re: oily

Wish I could buy them that cheap where I live. It's sae140 oil in the gearbox, you might need to go to a farm supplies shop or such like to find it.

Plenty more tips here.
