Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

            Meaux,You have a 53 Gale Sea King made for MWard, 5 hp. Probably a lot like my 53 Gale buccaneer 5.5 hp except for recoil/rope cover and tank spout location. let me know if you need parts sources beyond NAPA. I'm about halfway through reconditioning my Gale.

                  Twin City Outboards is a great place for parts. Probably have in excess of 10,000 outboards in inventory. They have never failed to come up with a part for my outboards over the years.

                      Best place to start for parts is the links page at aomic.org website. They just about cover it all. Is your sea king seaworthy? Gonna tune it and use it? These old generic E-rudes are pretty tough.

                        tim Mc The old Sea King actually belongs to my one of my stepsons. I run it when he first got it about 10 years ago. I'd like to put it back in service and use it myself. It weighs a ton! I tried your suggested www.aomic.org url but drew a blank---am I missing something in the syntax??regards,MeauxMeaux2@yahoo.com

                          No, it's just my poor typing sometimes.that site was mentioned before, the antique outboard motor club inc. or www.aomci. I had the letters wrong. the spark components are easy to replace, but carb parts are becoming more and more scarce/expensive. If the carb ain't leaking or otherwise messed up, don't open it up...just clean it occasionally with carb cleaner.

                            tim Mc Thanks again for the input----actually this old motor looks great----no dings or dents--as I remember, the fuel line valve did leak but I think just repacking the packing gland will stop that. I'd love to have decals to replace the worn ones----does anyone make decals for old models? Meaux
