    12v Eh!?
    Hmmm! Then I reckon then I'd better beef up the worn Paxolin 'bearings' with some metal bushes!! Looking forward to your 'Refurb' Blog Colin.
    Know what you mean about 'Dad', think mine would have been chuffed to see what I managed to make of his old Sea Scout.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Well the supermarine will get regular use once I get the boat rebuilt, dad would have loved to see his sea commander back on the water. Will be using 12v 7ah sla to power it.
    Cheers Colin.

    Thanks for the kind words, this is the part of the hobby I love the most.
    Have just been researching the serial numbers and found that this one is from the first batch of mk2's made in 1948.
    And some new parts are still available, so might replace the con rod and gudgeon pin. As the rest is still in good order.
    Normal running speed of 8000 to 10500 revs. is possible, although I doubt it will ever be used again.
    Cheers Colin.

    You obviously weren't paying attention. The mix ratio was in earlier post, but here it is again. 10ml diesel and 2 drips methanol. Not recome for running the engine as not enough lubricant, it was only a quick test to see if the engine was a runner. The cleanup was done with diesel and petrol mix equal parts and a stiff brush to remove the crud first then a suede brush and scotchbrite pad. As I put it together I used gun oil as it is going to be used as a static display model for the history section of my vintage model display. I hope this answers your question, cheers Colin.

    Colin Come on mate Spill the beans. What did you clean the motor with? And % of diesel to Methanol. I want to try it. Re engine cleaning I am using rubber buffing tools from Mano Mano as the post above to Doug. Shifts the oxides nicely. Good on copper, brass and pewter too. 6 tools in 3 different shapes.Cylinder Conical and rounded cylinder.Get into the nooks and crannies. They do wear away but they are cheap enough.

    I once played 'suicidal' silly mid on, and caught the end of a mistimed leg drive on my jaw! Jaw survived but a few teeth didn't๐Ÿ˜ก
    Relegated myself to extra cover after that, occasionally 3rd slip when absolutely necessary!
    I still can't get the smell of cider passed my nose ๐Ÿค”

    By Christ you should've seen us---- After the drinks that is. Scrumpy put me in a dry (thankfully) ditch for about 6 hours and even my darkish skin got sun sore . I'd stopped at a farm to ask directions about 10 'clock and was offered a drink as it was so hot. Loving cider I opted for some home made from the keg on the sideboard. About 1/2 a pint and a chat later I was on the bike again.About 6 in the evening a sledgehammer woke me banging inside my head and I was stiff and sore. Luckily someone offered me a lift to the inn I was lodging at. A warm shower and a meal soon sorted me out. BTW it didn't put me off cider though Re my square leg(s)Is that why I can't walk? I'm more like silly mid off currently.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Just realised my McAffee cover has Expired .Thanks for the Jog๐Ÿ‘
