Might look here. Generally, not a bad idea to check the manufacturers website to see if they have anything as a first stop. Would also recommend you read the post in my signature as there's some useful information in it.

Capt. The manufacturers website was my first stop, along with various other websites, that's how I found out that, although I can obtain a owners manual, the cost is around $35.00 with shipping. I am not cheep but I can be thrifty.

Many manufacturers offer free downloads of owner's manuals for most of their products. I've taken advantage of this with a few new and pre-owned items I have bought through the years, but no longer have literature.

In my experience with Mercury Marine however, they don't give anything away for free. I fail to understand the logic behind this customer "service" strategy.

What information are you looking for... the maintenance guides may include the information you need, did you download them and look at them?

I'll look, but I didn't see anything concerning downloadable maint. guides, but it's worth a look.

Thanks

Mike,
If you had no luck finding them, there are 4 downloadable PDF publications for maintenance and storage HERE. Perhaps they contain enough info, otherwise Service and Owner's manuals need to be purchased.

TB-

FYI, that's the same page I linked to above, in post #2, which Mike didn't bother to look at.
