    Default 5hp Sea King

    Hello Everyone,
    I'm new to this forum and very new to vintage outboard restoration. Can anyone tell me anything about his motor?(i.e. year? worth restoring? ease in finding parts? First things I should do/check to get her up and running again?)

    Any help would be much appreciated. I have aquired this motor as a "learn it as I go" project but am a bit overwhelmed and could us a bit of direction to start off. This board is a great resource and I look forward to your replies. Thanks all!
    -Phil

    Hi, its a common US motor by Montgomery words, its a 50's 60's, without the ID number is hard to tell.
    Would properly need new coils, as they are the first things to go.
    Not a hard restoration, if you still have the side covers even better.

    I dont have the motor in my hands right now, but should soon and will find out the serial number. It is missing the prop blade and side covers so if anyone has any suggestions as to where I might find these items I would much appreciate it.
    Seagull, yours looks and sounds great!

    If your in the US, then all parts do come up on ebay from time to time.

    I've got a 1953 Sea King 5hp that I havent done much with other than
    get it unstuck, then got it to fire on gas sprayed in the carb.
    I hope to tear into it when warm weather gets back.
    Good Luck with your motor.
