That is about the list price for a new one. But John probably has a new one in stock that you should be able to purchase for much less than that, that will come with a warranty. One gets the impression that this seller is trying make the very most of his items. After seeing items like this I tend no...

Interesting very interesting! I've only seen 2 wartime boxes & they were both Oak. Can't see enough detail of the motor to pass comment? The water pump housing & below look spot on. The box numbers say it's for a longshaft D, flat topped flywheel, long water jacket, but with no military numbers, All...

The blue is a standard 170 colour early in their production Say's it's missing the bevel pinion, often a real pig to extract, so unlikley, probably means a crown wheel, but with that, the drive spring , spring carrier & prop, more than £100 to rebuild unless you have the parts. As all the powerhead...

It's a fully bearing Kingfisher powerhead on a Yamaha FNR leg.

They made not very many in 1993.

There is a brouchure on the main site somewhere.

Almost identical to a Seagull 5R except the 5R has a steel needle roller con rod with a removable big end pin. The reeds control the induction timing , the hand cut piston can only affect the transfer timing on the top surface of the piston, the cut out will only ease access to the shortened transfe...

Gentlemen I'm a little concerned that all the 2 stroke oils your talking about are for air cooled engines. I suggest that you start your Seagull let it run for 10 minutes in your test tank & then place your hand on the cylinder, then try doing the same with anything you have that's air cooled, that ...

If you look at a pre war petrol tank, the fuel mix quantities were given in Imperial & Metric measures.

Starts Lake Karapiro then north to Hoods Landing (almost Port Waikato) I've just had a look on google earth , I think the Kiwi's must have slipped someone at google a drink , the int...

The electric drill is the last stage.
The first move is CLEAN & SET THE POINTS and every other contact you can find down the spark trail, the flywheel does not have to come off to do the points, every Seagull that has stood for more than 6 months usually needs this treatment.

As you will know from looking at the pictures, the little yellow boat I borrowed in NZ had a fully imersed prop whereas the grey one was surface piercing, a gentleman with your knowledge will be able to estimate the performance improvement if there was any. Both of the big races, can on a medium to ...

Nice to see your input JC, can you see if you can encourage any of your country men that are more computer literate than you or I, to post a few pictures here, that they think will demonstrate their achievments.

The Waikato Seagull race is 87 miles over 2 days. The Andy Pandy suit is just common sense, have a look on Google Earth at the Waikato, it flows north from Lake Taupo through Hamilton almost to Auckland. The race starts in the outlet from a hydro electric power station at Karapiro, nobody swimming t...

The rope sheave holes are I think 2 BA, I think your motor is the type that requires a puller tool that has three holes that correspond with these holes with a central threaded hole that a pointed bolt goes through, which on screwing in pulls the flywheel.
