What year Sea King?

3 posts in this topic

I'm trying to determine the year of a 15 horse Sea King short shaft for a friend of mine. It has some writing on it about being from Montgomery Ward's and built by Chrysler. Can anyone help me out with the year or how to determine it from the model number and serial number? Thanks!

try tim's outboard repair in hackensack
218-682-2331. give him the model and serial number. this is his slower time of the year, and he may have time to look for you.
the other way to go is twin city outboard in shakopee, down by canturbury. they have most every thing. i am lacking their number though. good luck, i love old outboards. i have a green and gold 5 hp scott atwater i've been using on my duck boat for years. new is nice, but i have a soft spot in my heart for them old beauties.
good luck, jigglestick.

Thanks jigglestick, I've done some more searching on the net and from what I've found the first part of the serial number gives me the year. First part serial No. 28X therefore an 82 model. Thanks again for the other number and contact, I'll add them to my "help" list! Man, I gotta get to URL, you guy's are having too much fun and I want in!! No, I haven't tried the weight on the nose thing yet but I've considered it! LOL

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
