Re: EFNR564FF9 Gearbox Pinion Gear Removal

Why didn't you follow Naughty Bits methods of pinion assembly removal? with the sacrificial brass drift. It looks from your pictures that you've destroyed the hardness of the bevel pinion gear, so you'll need a new one. The bevel pinion sleeve with bushes looks B.E.R, so a new one of those. If you l...

Re: EFNR564FF9 Gearbox Pinion Gear Removal

Do you have a parts book? If your answers yes, look at the parts drawing, the bit you've heated to red hot, is the stainless steel bevel pinion drive sleeve which is screwed on to the end of the bevel pinion, the last thing you really want to do is get the bevel pinion red hot it will destroy it's h...

Don't complain, there's only one seat!

If you tell her it's 4 stroke it should get halfway before it stops!

Re: Latest edition to the shed.

All of Seagull's production motors had to pass a test tank test, to ensure there were no faults before number stamping & packing, any small crankcase leaks were fixed during the test with the use of a center punch in the area where the bubbles were forming!

Major leaks required a new crankcase.

Re: Marston adverts

All Seagulls have exhaust back pressure holes, it was only the pre 1937 cast exhaust models had the provision for closing these vents to keep the exhaust noise down!

The straight exhaust models used the tell tail water to provide the same function.

Re: Bought Another One

You say the bearings & shafts are in good condition, do you have access to measuring equipment so it can be measured properly, just so we can illustrate what happens to bearings & shafts over the years. A sure sign of wear is that oily film in the dust in your first pictures, more so when th...
