I have a 1964 1.5hp (on a good day) British Seagull without a clutch. You are soooooo lucky, Nos :-)

It hasn't run in maybe 20 years...let's have a RIBnet 'get-your-old-engine-running' day. I'd video the event but, from memory, there'd be too much smoke to see anything meaningful :-)

It'll run-google the 'electric drill trick' for the ignition.

Mine's a 40+, so quite rare though that's nothing to recommend it by!

It's got a 30mm hole in the exhaust above water level and the underwater exhaust blocked up, so it's quiet underwater for using as a lure trolling motor inside harbours.

It sounds like an unsilenced BSA Bantam from above

Cool. Is it one of those new fangled thro' prop exhaust ones?

I got one of it's Longhaft electric start "solid prop hub" Johnson stablemates. It also starts first time most of the time and happily runs on 2YO fuel!
