I bought this 70's vintage Montgomery Ward mower at a garage sale in 1990 just before we bought our house.There were two mowers for sale, a no-name steel deck mower and the Montgomery Ward. The Montgomery Ward mower had an aluminum deck which sold me.
It’s been trustworthy though I think my lack of oil changes has resulted in bore wear and low compression. In fall and spring of it’s last years would require starter spray to get running.
When I bought my 60's Lawnboy the Montgomery Ward was relegated to spare mower. It actually came in handy when I tossed a rod on the Lawnboy 3 years ago,
.Now that my brother gave me his ‘70's Lawnboy it was time to set the Montgomery Ward off to a new home.
