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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
