Re: Boats ans Seagulls.

Nudge This might be a long reply, but bear with me here :P My idea for a "sporty" 102 goes something like this. As you say "fill it with something", well i was thinking of firstly boiling the cylinder in degreaser to get rid of any oil residue that will almost certainly be in the metal itself,(we're...

Re: Boats ans Seagulls.

I'll try! Most of us that have a basic understanding of how to extract a bit more power from a 2 stroke engine will know about things like piston clearance,reed valves,crankcase matching etc. Fairly easy(ish) things for most people to have a go at on a square block seagull engine,and many have done ...

Re: Boats ans Seagulls.

Not quite the sort of answer i was looking for, but thanks anyway Oyster. What i was thinking was to utilise the existing exhaust tube of the seagull and build an expansion pipe inside of the normal exhaust tube.Essentially a plain jane pipe on the outside with all the trickery going on inside. Cunn...

Re: Boats ans Seagulls.

I've often wondered how much work is involved with fitting an expansion pipe to a century/102 style seagull. Question for the NZ racers now. Is it possible to do something with the ordinary seagull exhaust tube so it behaves in a similar way to an expansion pipe? I don't really like the look of an e...

Re: Moderators Meeting Spillover

I can't see that John would need to babysit this sort of thing at all really. There must be quite a lot of people every month inquiring about something or other from John, possibly from the 4 corners of the globe for all we know, and i think i'm right in saying most people are well connected with th...

Re: Moderators Meeting Spillover

Good technique she has with that telecaster.Drummer's pretty good too. I'm thinking of buying my first electric guitar, don't know where to start with it but should be fun to learn on. Staying with the "seagull" theme, check this bunch of hillbillies out. Laugh out loud, but i think they're great :l...

Re: Moderator's Meeting

Firstly,before this gets all bitter and twisted I recall it was Oyster himself that said I might be opening a can of worms when it comes to the 102s and he,s dead right. Just look at some of the comments the rest of you qhave hurled back at me. I am not trying to hide anything from anyone here, but ...

Re: Moderator's Meeting

I'm already working on post war 102's. Hugo's on the wartime bits. I did post the then current list a while back which wasn't as finished as i would have liked, and the "up to date" all singing all dancing version is still a work in progress and probably won't be ready for quite a while yet, but you...

Re: What model is this?

Not yet Charles, (i certainly haven't ) but most people that use this site often enough should at least know what we mean by a 40 minus and a 40 plus as it's a term often used on here. The name "model 45" and "seagull 2" are too clinical for a name anyway so i just copy what everybody else has calle...

Re: What model is this?

Not nonsense at all Adrian! Keith and i were discussing how the very earliest of the "little model 40's" took a little while to evolve into what we would commonly recognize as an F,FV,FVP, (perhaps to some people the LS as well) etc. and what was to come in later years with the SJM/P motors afterwar...

Re: What model is this?

I would tend to agree (mostly) Keith. Here's a thing though, we've heard many times before of how British Seagull stated that their outboard was "the best in the world", or "the best that money can buy" etc. That's a pretty bold statement to make without first having carried out plenty of testing be...

Re: Have I got the longest one?

Just to satisfy my own curiosity with the "extensions", would it be possible for some close up pictures of the exhaust tube and drive shaft please :P

I'd like to see what's going on with the drive tube towards the bottom, particularly where the 2 little holes normally are in the drive tube.
