Re: Cutlass Bearing V Bronze Outer Bearing ?

Keep in mind running aground or even running in shallow water could stir up sand, sediment, and other crud that could do some damage to special bearings.

Re: Gordon Cheape Compound

If you have a propeller and are unsure of it's direction of rotation, the side of the blade further away from you is the direction. For eexample, if it is a right-handed propeller the right side of the blade will be further away from you than the left.

Would I be wrong to suggest that as it seems to have no revrsing gear, it is more likely to be a workshop engine than a launch engine.
It appears that the inner, smaller diameter, flywheel is a handwheel for the slip-eccentric reversing gear.

Re: ST Harold Brown - missing photos

Re: Flag Pole Socket

Good eye Ron :lol: :lol: at least there was a relatively easy solution. I was removing a transfer case from a transmission in a customer's truck and using an expensive, but non-reversable, ratcheting boxed-end wrench in a very tight and inaccessible spot.
