Hello James,

sorry no one has responded, but to be honest we had never heard of one ever being made in GRP so it was a very long shot finding anyone on here.

I can only surmise she was made as a one off, either by someone in the GRP moulding business for their own use or by an enthuiastic amatuer.

How is the cleaning out and restoring going? Found a nice motor for her yet.?

Regards,
John

Hello James

See you are determined to go Stuart Turner! Hope it runs sweetly! Check there is no play in the flywheel end of the crankshaft to indicate worn bearing and thus duff crank case seal!

Good luck fitting it and making it safe!

Well Found James!

I suspect you may also have gas aboard, so can I suggest a simple gas detector fitted that will protect you if there are any fuel or gas leaks!

I have a diesel motor but use gas and have a gas detector... better safe than....

Send more pics in or your Restorers page when you do more aboard!
