Marston stuff

A couple of Marston owners have asked if I knew of any brimless coolie hat flywheel covers that might be available, as they were only used on the late mid range Marstons they are a very scarce commodity. I could do with a couple of dent free ones as well, so it looks like I will have to go to the ex...

Re: Mounting bracket

Got a picture from the daughter of the Man with the SD transom bracket bits, he doesn't know what he wants for them yet, he's thinking.

Transom Bracket Types

I wonder would this site benefit from a pictorial database of all the different Seagull transom brackets? All that this would require is everyone to send in pics of their brackets & some smart volunteer with the ability to juggle, edit & coordinate all this data. This raises the question, ho...

Re: Mounting bracket

Alan your photo is a type "B" No 1, whereas your illustration is a type "B" No 2.

The No 1 is all sheet metal construction no angle iron.

Re: Mounting bracket

We've had this discussion before, the reason so few of these brackets survived intact was that they were for specific canvas sided collapsible boats, & wouldn't fit on a conventional modern hull, the picture Jerseyman has posted appears to be for one that has been modified to fit on a different ...

Not sure what a 105 is, don't think it's a seagull.

Re: Mounting bracket

I've seen that one Rene, I thought that one had been cut & welded, stick as opposed to gas as the rest appeared to be.

Re: Engine number

I thought you needed some clarification.

I've never seen one with a number after the "R" which is why I never asked the question, so it wasn't common to see a number after the "R"!

Pigola were those 2 40's local motors?

Re: Engine number

Why would R7 equal twice? I'm sorry I can't ask Seagull's production manager your question I went to his funeral last year & the rebuild shop was part of his domain. We've covered the date code information & the rebuild information several times on here, so a little effort should make the ru...

Re: Engine number

Is that Dr. Who playing with us, as it looks like he's slipped an OJ serial number into that one.

Re: Engine number

Electronic ignition, Bing carb, Forty featherweight, 1982, the R is the mysterious bit you'd expect to see it as the last character, even though none of the records I've seen, mention CDI's & Bing carbs being used on the same Featherweight motor, though they could of been using up the last few B...

Re: Mounting bracket

Bear in mind that your asking for a " SD skeletal mounting bracket " I've seen no evidence that the skeletal bracket was manufactured before 1946, so unless Dr. Who delivered this style of bracket with his time machine it's unlikely it was originally fitted to an SD. This is Hugo's area of...

Re: Bought Another One

Any thicker than 140 oil will do, with a new prop shaft bush, if it still leaks with the new bush (due to a worn prop shaft) try adding some none additive unsexy grease to it, just to thicken it a little. (it has to be pourable at your water temperature) Should have bought the bits from John as he'd...

Re: Mounting bracket

These don't grow on trees, very difficult to find a complete one & not cheap.

Can someone post pics of all of the parts including the correct engine support lug & the locking pin.

Re: Bought Another One

I think you'll find both of your thumb screws are brass (magnet test) & one is a chrome plated one. I use the thickest gear oil I can scrounge in these oil nipple boxes, I'm using SAE 460 at the moment, try your local agricultural/ industrial supplier they probably have it for the local mining c...
