Re: Taking SJM 661L5 For a Run

Totally agree, its more like a 60's motor, with some plastic parts, clench bolt facing backswords, tank ends, it even looks like an aluminium exhaust and tiller.

Re: AC Authenticity

Not knowing the date of the motor in question, makes it difficult to be 100%, as parts may have overlapped.

Re: AC Authenticity

The AC was a post war motor to around 1957, tank supports would be chrome and aluminium clutch lever.
Bronze lever are seen on wartime motors, this information may also depend on the age of your motor.

Re: Strange Spark Plug find

I have a good collection of original unused spark plugs, I use original plugs that would have been in the motor at the time, I have never used a modern equivalent, I mostly use Lodge and champion, plus I have others like KLG Lissen and I have only ever had a problem with one and it was a more modern...

Re: Moderators Meeting Spillover

So did anyone actually come up with anything worthy of consideration by the three amigos, or was this just a smoke blowing exercise?

Re: Anzani Unitwin 10hp

And I thought it was easier than that, the 15 had a three blade prop and the 10 had a two.

Thank you Tam.

It arrived in the post, even though it was folded in half to get it through the letterbox.
One look at it and it reminds my how cold it is outside. :shock:
Much appreciated.

Re: What model is this?

I will keep it short and simple.
I wonder where we've seen bent thumbscrews before? Copied from the older 102's i expect
I have said this before, if you look at the advert, the little forty has the 102 decal on the tank, 102 throttle lever and thumb screws, a baby 102.

Re: What model is this?

Pictures much appreciated John, Did Seagull have problems with new motors, Yes, just look at the changes that were made to the little forty in its short life, otherwise it would have stayed the same until the end of production, a lot of Jeremy's work shows that. At my age Charles I call them fins, a...

Re: What model is this?

Why didn't I think of the SJM, also the LM was a four blade prop. :cry: I would appreciate a picture John, as I have never seen a small four blade. Fins on the head, did it need them? The early Anzani pilot had a flat fin-less head, and went on to a basic finned head later. Seagull needed to put pic...

Re: What model is this?

I did ask the question earlier, is this a photo or an artists graphic? If so then we could be discussing something that did not actually get produced, even as a one off You could be right, the FVP add was not the same motor they sold and I know of one other that never made it to production. http://...
