I do like the cheq. plate and the idea of hinging the lid at both ends but what will you do with the grab handle?

Andy
Cut it to one side of the middle upright and fit a handrail fitting I have seen that has a sliding catch which locks but also allow opening. It has a interlocking part like a karabiner

They all did form new, never understood why. The hub is a conical hole with a single key way.
They are a common design and you should be able to find a cheap one some where. Make sure there is enough dish on the wheel or you will be forever knocking your fingers

Another major item which i am looking for is an engine box lid - anybody out there know of ones where abouts?

I know it would be pretty simple to fabricate one with marine ply and hardwood but getting the fittings like the hand rail and engine vents would be more than difficult!

Thus, a complete lid would be ideal!

Any help v. much appreciated

Thanks

Hi Phil
I spoke to Lancing Marine and asked for the bearing, the guy says there are four bearings, but said that if it is rumbleing it is going to be the "U J's " .
He wanted to sell me the bearings, bellows, "U J's, seals etc etc and said that i would need to remove the boat from the water as soon as possible.
Can the bearings be changed with it still in the water ?????? as my trailer is poorly and 40 miles away, i will check the outdrive but i need to get to Cardiff for the raceing on the 1st of October.
I have a copy of the manual for the boat ( Halmatic ) and have now aquired a genuine Mermaid Turbo 4 manual but i have not got any information or diagrams for the outdrive.

Ian donít go to Lancing for the bearings, go to a bearing stockist should be about
£ 100-00 for the 4 bearings & 2 seals. You can change them with the boat in the water but a bit difficult , you canít change the ujís or check them because you have to undo the bellows, best to do it on dry land.

Anyone know if....

Are the UJ's Hardy spicer? Or for that matter are they serviceable, are new spiders and bearings available?
I need a new seat for mine, anyone replaced the seat and got any hints about where to go?
Thanks!
