Montgomery Ward Snow-thrower

2 posts in this topic

I have an old (1968) 5 h.P. Montgomery Ward snow blower that I bought used a few years back and it still runs like a champ and does a good job for me. I was summerizing it this weekend and noticed the belts are in rough shape. I found a note in the owner's manual that they were last changed in 1976.

My question is: where would I go to find spare parts (esp. belts currently) for this unit. Monkey-Wards went out of business (I think bankrupt) a long while back. Did they (and their products) get bought out by Sears or anyone? The Owner's manual I have is very detailed and you could only hope to find one half as good with today's products.

Any good auto parts store should have the belts you need. just pull the belts and bring them in. The enjines on most of montgomery wards products are Briggs and Stratton, any small enjine shop should be able to get parts for these.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
