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.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
