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

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
