Re: What gull does this belong to?

Hi Jon thanks for the information. In the photos you can see I have a TD complete crankcase and quite a bit of the rest. I would like to try and complete it given the time and money. It all came in sack together with other bits for 40 pluses that I luckily got for $50. Anyhow as it was all together ...

Re: Drive tube?

I meant would the tube have anything in common with the tapered shaft and the other bit?

Re: Drive tube?

Drive tube?

Hi just have a question about a drive tube I have. It is 20 inches long and appears to have the clutch thread on the mounting bracket but it only has an inner diameter of 1/2 an inch which is quite small so the driveshaft must be really small, what motor would that have come off? Drive shaft must ha...

Swapping Exhaust tubes

I have a 100 century exhaust tube that is banged around and want to replace it with a spare from what I have been told is a 102 exhaust tube that may polish up ok. The 100 tube has 2 holes drilled in it and the 102 tube none. Would the water passage fitting on the 102 tube be enough/ or to much vent...
