Re: Sea King Outboard It is a 1963 five horsepower, Gale model 5D22. I suppose you know Gale was a division of OMC, right? '63 was the last year of Gale production in U.S., though it appears they were made for another year or so in Canada (?). They are a very nice and sweet running motor, If in good shape and taken care of should run another 50 years---well maybe not in Florida salt water.

That is just a water jacket cover you see there. It does have needle bearings on the con rods, but I'm not suggesting skimping on oil. It is supposed to run on 24:1 mix.
Use TCW-3 outboard oil. The propeller has a stainless steel drive pin. It is not designed to shear. There is a 'shock absorber' built into the lower unit which slips when you dredge up the oyster bars, then re-grips automatically. Those shock absorbers sometimes break, especially if you let water get into the lower unit. Information Theory Using Matlab Solutions Manual download. download 2018 Audi A6 Owner Manual.

Does it run well? Most all of those old OMC motors have bad coils if they haven't already been replaced.
They are available all over the world, including right here at iboats. You have to remove the powerhead in order to disconnect the shift rod to replace the water pump.
ALWAYS replace the 303355 gasket and 303347 o-ring on the seal assembly at the top of the driveshaft any time you remove the powerhead. Re: Sea King Outboard Thanks for the quick response.
Yes, I know that gale was part of OMC at one time. I remember when I was a kid, my uncle had an old gale 60HP motor which is still running today. I remember the motor was very large for a 60hp outboard.
