Is there any wood in the 2004 Montauk 170? I thought Whalers don't use wood, but have been reading that some of the Whalers have wood in the transom.

Not "some" Whalers, ALL Whalers.

All (outboard and sterndrive powered) Whalers have marine grade plywood in their transoms. A 2004 Montauk will mostly have Whaleboard (a phenolic resin composite made by Richlite Company of Tacoma, WA http://www.whalelite.com/ ) and aluminum embedded in the hull for use as backing for fasteners securing the hardware and fittings.
