    "the Willamette, above albany, very dicey going between albany and harrisburg, or actually, all the way to salem. But especially in the stretch from peoria to irish bend. For now I am just exploring, but there are some good fish to be had and not much pressure. thanks for the tip. Laings says they have props for my motor."

    "This is the best place to find out info on old SeaKing motors. Click on link, then select your brand on the left side. You can find out more about your model at this site. Repair manuals are available at this site too...

    Try Evinrude or Johnson parts too! They work with this motor.Don't ask shops for SeaKing parts, they;ll look at you crosseyed. Ask for parts from Evinrude and Johnson that are comparable. You may have to take the part in to get a perfect fit."

    Default "Hi, I have recently come into

    "Hi, I have recently come into the possession of a 15 hp Montgomery Ward outboard. I am planning to sell it, but I don't know much about it. I know that it was only used a couple of times by my father and that it has sat in the garage since the 80's. How might I get a serial number and age? Does anyone think that it still has value? Any information that someone could share would be greatly appreciated."

    Default "Todd, over the years a number

    "Todd, over the years a number of mfg's built the outboards for Wards.

    The problem with them is there are literally thousands of these "store brand" outboards out there in sheds, garages and basements - so the value tends to be quite low compared to a "name brand" of similar vintage.

    Since it's a 15 horse the odds are high that it was built by either Force or Chrysler - neither are a desireable motor even under their own brand with both being totally out of business and parts are getting scarce.

    Look around the clamp bracket or even under the hood for a model number.

    The Wards models started with 2 or 3 letters followed by a few numbers - so you are looking for something like VWB190004 etc.

    Once we nail down exactly what you have I can give you an idea of what similar models have sold for.

    In general, a 15 horse Wards if an early 80's model and running well may get 200-300 dollars on a good day..."

    A "professional" is someone who gets paid for their work - it doesn't necessarily mean they are good at it :)

    Default Re: I have a 79 sea king 15 VWB521

    Question:
    I have a 1982 Chrysler Sea King 15hp. Just replaced head gasket and rebuilt the carb. When I'm running WOT, it surges down. Found out today that if I pump the fuel line bulb while running wot it runs just fine, stays and doesn't surge. Is this the fuel pump? Also have noticed air bubbles in my internal fuel lines but no fuel leakage so assuming it's not an internal fuel line issue. Any help, ideas or questions would be appreciated! Thanks!!
