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.

  • Montgomery Ward 5hp Year and Water Impeller

    Hi all. I dug out of my grandfather's barn an old blue and white Montgomery Ward 5hp outboard. It hadn't run in about 5-6 years. Well, I fixed that. Cleaned the carb, new plugs and fuel lines, and she runs like a champ. Only problem is that the impeller ( or whats left of it) is in DIRE need of replacement. Can anyone tell me where to get one and possibly a lower seal set as well? Also wondering the year. Here is the info I got off the plate on the motor:
    Clinton Engine
    Model# K500 3108 C
    Serial# 1053306
    Type# XTV 52250

    Your motor was built by Clinton K500 is a Clinton number 52250 is a 74 Sea King.
    Air cooled power head with a water cooled exhaust leg.
    Clinton has been gone since the early 80s Though there is someone out there with parts.You might search here for a post on Clinton parts.Also try on google.
    Also try ebay for impellers.You might give it a couple of good runs in a tank/can for water back pressure even though a bad impeller. before spending for an impeller.These motors have a reputation for finicky operation.Seldom performing the same twice in a row.good luck

        You may try maxrules also for the impeller.
