The Classic British Seagull
An Excellent Technical Repair Manual
“The Classic British Seagull” offers many ‘trade secrets’ and procedures that are not written in other repair manuals. Besides this the manual offers some insightful boating and marine knowledge. The manual covers the engines built between 1955-1996, but also offers some advice on the earlier and later models produced by British Seagull over the years.
“The Classic British Seagull” consists of three sections: The first section is for general running and operation of the motor, which includes how to mount the motor on your transom, starting procedures, running the motor in different weather conditions, general information and maintenance. The next section is on how to trouble-shoot a non-working engine and gives a few suggestions on what to look for. The third and final section is on the servicing and the technical repair for different sections of the motor.
