Well... just run in and used.... or brand new... they are a brilliant motor. Running in advice stands... it needs some sensible exercise during running in!

Dont try to run it in in neutral you could cause a lot of damage! It has to be run in, in fwd gear only.

Follow the instructions in the manual. Simply not worth doing anything else.
Sort out a weekend to do it & go & have fun

Bought a new Seagull in the 1980s.
The running in instructions were to not go below 3/4 throttle for the first few hours!

Thanks for the help all, ferlander , I've heard you can change the carbs on these and make a 15hp, have you tried this ?

No that doesn't work... well assuming you have bought the model in my image. That 9.8hp (the light 26kg model) was an already maxed out version of the 6/8hp models.

They made a 9.9hp that was much heavier at 41kg with a much larger engine capacity... and this was the same as the 15hp in all but carb/tuning respects.... apart from the engine capacity it shared much of its construction with the 18hp too.

I have one of these engines, bought some time ago. The dealer is still offering the engines new for sale to the UK.

I basically ran it in by using it normally. The book says the first hour should be slow, but after that use it normally but vary the speed as mentioned above.

Just don't run it flat out continuously! And yes the oil mix is 25/1 during running in, so it does smoke a bit.
