Hi David
The pic really doesn't do it justice .It is a complicated instrument .
I have the manual and all technical specs plus the invoice no. but no price .
Given that the original boat/motors/trailer cost more than a house and land in Sydney the sounder would have been pricey.
I think that their market was professional/trawlers etc.

G’day Neil
I find that really interesting. We think of that tech more recent. I bet It cost a small fortune in the day.

Cleaning SX 2  I have come across 3 brand new spark plugs ( thought they were used ) along with 100 metre roll of strip chart recorder paper and thought subject may be of interest .
The roll fits into my 1960 Furuno 200 Mark -3 fish finder.
The pick up (since removed ) was under the hull  and sent to the unit which recorded by needle on to the moving paper .
It is 30 x 20 x 15cms and weighs about 6 kgs . Shocked
Has nothing in common with today's lightweight colour units

Thank you JB
I am currently giving SX 2 a good clean and I found 3 brand new plugs in the cabin drawer which I had always assumed were used  Smiley Must be at least 25 yrs old .
I can try these in identifying the smoke problem .
Also I found a 100 metre roll of chart recorder which is part of my fish finder .
See photos of boat and barn find  Wink
The metho method I shall pass for now.

Also check new post on the fish finder .

According to saving old seagulls (S.o.S) you are perfectly fine with 25:1 (i keep it at 20:1 to keep it on the safer side) thats because the oil technology today is way better than it was when the seagull outboard motor was designed in the 30's. Same deal with my 1962 evinrude fastwin, that originally ran on 16:1 I run that on 25:1. nowadays the standard is 40:1-50:1 with needle roller bearings, and i wouldn't push them past 50:1 unless you want scored cylinders and a worn out motor.

You could have carbon buildup that is causing the improper combustion, try spraying with a spray bottle a fine mist of water metho mix into the carbys whilst they are running at mid rpm until it starts to want to die, then let it build back up again and repeat ~5 times.

I have twin motors so that probably takes out spark and thermostat .
Stale fuel is probably correct but it is interesting that your run the Seagull on half the oil .
That's what prompted my question .
Is there a risk ?

just sayin' my British seagull is 10:1... i run it on 20:1. and it doesn't smoke that much. if you have ever witnessed someone put diesel in a petrol car, you will notice how much they will smoke, thats the unburnt fuel thats making the smoke. So the chances are is that you have got a weak spark in 1 cylinder, your fuel is stale, or your thermostat has had it and the motor is not getting up to operating temp, so it doesn't burn the oil in the fuel properly.
