Oil type for 2-cycle Montgomery Ward air-cooled outboard?

7 posts in this topic

I have recently acquired this 5-hp outboard and want to try using it for a kicker. It's old, but looks decent (age and general style of the era notwithstanding), and does start up pretty well. Before I actually try to use it, I need to get some fresh gas/oil mix in it.

Since this is an air-cooled engine, do I use a marine/ outboard 2-cycle oil, or a general purpose small engine 2-cycle oil that specifically mentions air-cooled engines?

I would use amsoil saber . It burns nearly smokeless once the motor is warmed up and I dont think youll load the plugs up either.

No need to make this complicated. Any decent two-cycle oil should work for you.

Now, go buy a set of really GOOD ear muffs! grin.gif

Hope it's not too loud since the exhaust does come out under water. If so, I'll get rid of it at no loss except a bit of screwing around time since it was given to me.

I'll keep that in mind if it doesn't work out for me.

Any 2 cycle oil will work. Just an FYI. The engine is air cooled but the exhaust is water cooled so don't run it out of water.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
