Hi all, I have just returned from a Maritime Festival in Picton where I yesterday displayed my boat and Stuart P66. It received lots of nostalgic comments about the motor and launched it after lunch for a parade past. Subsequent to the previous posting regarding having too large a prop, I had the prop repitched and motored off. Unfortunately, the motor would not carry the loading and would die away under load unless I put it back into neutral to allow the revs to build. I became pretty despondent for a while but some of the older salts said it was too retarded. I was pretty sure I had got it right but anyway, got home today and rechecked it. What a twit, lying in the sole and turning over the flywheel by hand I had it breaking dead on ignition TDC as per the manual, But!!! I was turning the flywheel the wrong way! So I thought the points were making when in fact they were breaking! (about 6 inches or so later) Poor wee soul, how on earth it even ran I will never know. Anyway now I can’t wait till tomorrow to take it for another test. It is obvious I am a woodworker and not an engineer but I can understand what Hans said on another thread that you do develop a love for these motors. Will keep in touch, cheers, Roy
