Your probably right Kevin. I have a Blaxland Rae 3 1/4 HP ,quite small but a nice little engine ,people love to see it'' bounce start '' at shows . Was the 30 HP engine a conventional two stroke ........30 hp ! . Was it just a big version of the twin ?

Kevin,

Okay.... I neglected to check my "snail mail" files... I found it...

It shows a 3-1/2HP Single and a 7HP Double. Also a two page advertisement and specifications on the power launches.

Within the boat advertisement they have a list of engines without additional specs or photos:
  • 2-1/2 HP Standard Pup
  • 3 HP Master Pup
  • 3-1/2 HP Pup model SXT
  • 4-1/4 HP Super Pup
  • 5/7 HP Twin model TXR
  • 6/8 HP Greyhound
  • 10 HP Seadog
  • 20HP Twin Seadog


Later in the text it says:

Quote:

The 10HP "Seadog" is ideal for heavy duty work in 20 foot to 30 foot craft. It has an enormous reserve of power, an is capable of easier starting and slower idling that any other engine of its size. This model includes all the Blaxland-Chapman patented features which have been well proven for over 40 years for simplicity, reliability, and durability.




There are not pictures or specs on the larger engines.

There's a bloke somewhere near Taree NSW apparently still making Blaxlands, and certainly still fixing them up beautifully . I am making enquiries to get his details...stay posted!

By the way, kevin, my Simplex is back from the dead and the re-christening should be this weekend if all goes well. Will post photos under the previous SImplex threads in a short while.

Hi folks.I am interested in getting a Chapman Pup or similar marine two stroke in any condition as I can fix it myself.
Once I have one I will build a Dory,about 18 feet to do a bit of trolling for Pelagics up here in rocky.\
I am an old shipwrighht and remember those lovely little donks from my boyhood.before outboards became reliable.
Thanks.Liam

Aub Rose has a sea dog but unfortunately he has passed on. Also I believe the Sydney Maritime Museum
has most of one.
Reguarding rebuilds etc ,unless you are conversant
with #1 the way the bottom end of a blaxland is set up
#2 How to remove flywheel without breaking it
#3 setting the gears for the magneto drive
Leave it alone, as most likely you will not get the best out of your engine and will probably
end up destroying hard to get parts
We cant get new cranks anymore,or base plates
Cylinders,pistons,rings,gaskets,gudgeons are available new.(Brett)
most other parts we have either reco ie water pumps,maggy drives,carbies etc
We have a supply of good second hand parts
(that are 75% as new)

Pictures? And where are you located. Should be interest to some one. Is the cylinder OK, or cracked from rust?
Value?? Unsure.
