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 threads or hijack existing threads. Old threads of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

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

3. Do not take over someone elseís thread (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 thread of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the thread 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 thread.

5. By starting your own thread, 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 thread. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to threads that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any thread 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 thread.

7. Posting at the end of any thread is considered to be hijacking the original posters thread which in turn subjects the thread 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 thread asking you not to reply to old threads. The Red banner will read: Please note this thread has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new thread.

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

  • Sea King 6 HP manual/service manual

    Gentlemen-

    I have a Wards sea king 6hp motor that I obviously bought used about 15 years ago. I now have a son and want to start taking him fishing in the allum. boat. I havent run it in about 8 years, she leaked oil out of the lower half of the motor about 2 years ago, and i want to tune her up and get her running for this spring. I will try to get the model and serial today. I am looking for either a parts, service, or owners manual that anyone could possible send me, as in a pdf file. Little tight on money this year and looking at "free" options first before i go and spend 40 bucks on a manual. Any and all help is appreciated.

    Brian

    Welcome,Sometimes you can find a manual at the library.Also can find
    Manuals on dvd, ebay is a good starting point.I have a number of used aftermarket manuals I payed about $15 or $20 for.The motor will probably turn out to be built by Chrysler model number can tell us.
    If "oil"came out the exhaust it might just be exhaust residue.
    It may smell gassy.If it has the gear oil smell not so good.
    But probably fixable.You may want to examine the gearcase for cracks.

        There is a hole in my info.I can tell you it is a Chrysler and somewhere in 66-68 my guess is 66.The 66,67 motors use a Tillotson MT91B carb,the 68-73 use a tillotson MD** 66-67 motors are listed as using a 24:1 fuel mix,
        68-73 use 48:1 24:1 for severe service.

          It's a 1970. The "07X" says that. (Reverse the numbers)

            Since i havent got anyone with a PDF file manual, can you guys guide me on just a quick tune up of the motor. I mean, i can do the plugs and carb, clean then, make sure there is spark, can you guys guide me on the lower half of the motor with the gear oil.

            Thanks

            This picture is the lower half of the motor where my gear oil (hopefully) has been leaking. Can someone tell me the weight i need to replace the oil and also the proper way to change gearcase oil. The red circle shows the leaking from the insert fitting which i have now tightened up....any guidance on changing the oil is appreciated

              Examined gearcase, no signs of cracking or spacing on any parts.

                  hey, i also have a 6hp wards seaking. identical really..... just wondering where i can get a new prop for it?
                  when i bought the prob, the previous owner had bent it on something. so he decided to heat it and bend it back with a hammer.
                  i think he may have cooled it too quickly because after about 6 months of owning it, the prop broke in that area. it seemed brittle almost as if it shattered right there..... just need a replacement. or maybe someone that can weld it back????

                    The circled screw is one of two that are used to fill and drain the gearcase. Under each of the screws is a plastic washer which will deform in time or can be lost by a previous owner. Those washers prevent gearcase oil seapage. Seapage(leaking) is a common problem on older outboards. It just means you must check the gearcase oil level or refill the gearcase more frequently.

                    Gearcase lube comes in squeeze tubes like toothpaste and is sold at marine stores. Instructions on how to drain and fill the gearcase are printed on the lube tube. It is a little messy filling the gearcase because the lower hole is used to fill and the upper hole is to vent and let you know when the gearcase is full. Then you have to get the screw and washer into the lower hole without loosing too much gearlube on the floor and your hands...... messy!
