Lockwood Ash

Production History

   The Lockwood Ash of Jackson, Michigan was founded in 1904. They manufactured a single, a twin and later a four cylinder marine inboard engine, for 12 to 30 foot boats. These engines were sold under the Lockwood Ash brand to dealers and boat builders. It was also sold under the "Motorgo" brand to Sears-Roebuck. Ranges were from 7 to 30 horsepower. They also made a row-boat outboard motor from 1914 through 1926. In 1927 Mr.Ash sold his holdings to Mr.Lockwood, who expanded the outboard line to include larger horsepower outboards under the Lockwood name. In 1929 the Lockwood Outboard Motor Company merged with Elto and Evinrude to form OMC (Outboard Motor Company). Ole Evinrude became the President and Stephen Briggs (of Briggs and Stratton) was the CEO. With the depression at hand the Lockwood Outboard was discontinued as a brand in 1930. We are not sure if some manufacturing took place after 1930 or if they had some left over production, but Lockwood motors showed up in the early 30's with the Sea King brand names from Evinrude. Sea King was sold through Montgomery Wards.

   Hard core parts for these outboards are getting more difficult to find as time goes on. Many older outboards used common Ignition and Carburetor venders for that period. Discount Marine Parts has Ignition and Carburetor repair kits for most all of these older outboards. If we don't have what your looking for, we have many sources to locate your part. Obviously some parts are just not available. We can sometimes find it used and often we have the part made if there is enough demand. Discount Marine Parts has a large inventory of parts for most brands of American made Outboards, Inboards and Sterndrives. We also have most parts and service manuals available.
