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

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
