    Saterday while at the baitshop I got offered a 7 horse Montgumery Ward outboard for 150 dollars. I was wondering if anyone used this brand and what u thought of it and if it is a good deal. Not sure about the year. I would be pushing a 14 foot flatbottom with it.

    I had a 7 1/2 hp back a few years ago. It was made for them by Clinton Moters. It was great for pushing my little 14 Jon around.

    I also had a 7 1/2 hp Montgomery Wards I got back in the 70's... think I paid something like $325.00 for it brand new. Problem was I also had a 3 1/2 HP Sea King, aslo a Montgomery Wards motor that I used on the 14' jon boat and it would get it going so fast I would think I could water ski. Never did get that 71/2 broke in right and my wife got it in the divorce. Don't think she ever got it to run either. lol BUT THAT PRICE IS OUT OF LINE.
