British Seagull 102 series runs again

This Seagull engine may be all of fifty nine years old (1957) today it was started and test run on the bench.

Check that four blade propellor, its turning well. This size engine has a clutch, so the drive to the prop shaft can be cut.

Checked it out, no bad exhaust smoke and rather good for a bench run.

You know Roy there is something awesomely beautiful about those engines - a design led purely by function. So British, and so historical. Everyone should be forced to own one of these at some stage, it would ground quite a few people I know!!!


Four British Seagulls of various types and sizes are in stock and ready for your order and restoration!
