Re: Reducing Noise

quote="RickUK"]If noise is an issue for you, it will never be resolved whatever you do to a Seagull - you might get to what you consider acceptable limits with a very late Seagull such as a Curlew, but otherwise a small Japanese engine would be better for you, which is probably better on an inflatab...

Re: Unrestored 102 SD (Naval?)

From my brief experience and I’m fairly convinced you are right. The crank on mine is black steel, welded along the counter weights not as yours is cast and all too nice. I’m sure someone has a photo to compare.I’m sure Jan or one of the SD specialists has a spare crank and con rod to help you out. ...

Wjlloydii
welcome these little engines get under your skin. (Beware the infection ) you will soon have dozens of them. They all have charms of their own but are fun and not as expensive as other vices. Post some pictures if you get a chance.
All the best Graham

Re: SD register

[quote="Niander101"]Id say they are worthy of it[/quote] Yes Worth it id say. I know a running SD is an impressive sight but I’m shocked as to the increase in value of late. Best of luck with the register , what numbers do you want ? The more facts we can gain on these engines takes out most of the ...

Short jacket, long jacket, raised top fly wheel, square edge fly wheel, gear levers, throttle leavers brass, chrome. Without the support of this site and its members these little engines all too ...

Re: Input needed on 102 AD15225

Have i missed something but in Macs pictures there’s a shot of the bottom half of the tiller arm. It appears to have a natty little throttle cable ring where the rivet that holds the tube in. Is this a split pin replacement or was this an original feature that is missing off mine?[attachment=0]5.JPG...

Re: 40 plus weedless or not to weedless

I’ve tried that on the four blade it dint have much effect on the weed it still raped itself around the prop. I fear the Seagull has a reputation for finding any weed there is. There is a photo of a converted knife fitted off the skeg to deal with wrap around weed somewhere on the site.

Re: 40 plus weedless or not to weedless

Give it a go, lakes don’t seem to suffer with the weed problems that our rivers and canals do. The hydro vane prop I think was dropped due to the so called modern design props lent themselves to a weed less shape. But like the wheel if it works why alter it. Thats me and my 40+ enjoying 100+ temp in...
