I've inherited a mid-50's Montgomery Ward Sea King 5hp outboard and am in the process of overhauling it. It seems that the coil is shot and I'm having problems finding a replacement. The ones that I've found on the 'net seem to look different and I'd rather not buy a bunch of incorrect parts.

Does anyone know of a good place where I can go find such a part in the Muskegon/Grand Rapids area?

Thanks,
John

My first recomendation would be Van's in Grand Rapids, they're on Alpine.

I did an overhaul on a '55 last year and they had every part I needed (basically everything) in stock accept for points and condesors. Their staff in extremely knowledgable.
