My New Seagull??

Post by notav8 »

Hi All,
I recently purchased this little darling ?? :roll:
I was told its an early model Seagull, and very rare, as the previous owner said he had never seen another !
I think the motor is original, but the cowling is wrong LOL :lol: :lol:
Anybody have a clue as to what the lower unit is from ?
I will probably repaint the cowl, fit a new Seagull decal, and she will be a little beaut. LOL :lol:
Photos may be wrong size ?
Cheers

Yes, Its a Victa lawnmower engine. I would like to know what the lower unit is from. Maybe I will find the correct engine for it someday.

Cool, Thanks for that.!!
I think I know where I can get a parts outboard.
I think I have heard that the BMB motors had Head / Block Corrosion problems, probably like most water cooled motors. :roll:

Interesting Seagull :lol:

Victa upper and BMB lower. Must say I've never seen that combination before.
