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 keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
