1984 Four Winns Horizon 190 with Mercruiser 470 help needed.
I just acquired my first boat, and I am in need of some help. I am quite a techie when it comes to car engines, but this engine just scares me First it lacks an alternator which was weird at first but then I figured it has a stator just like a motorcycle would. But then cooling is so much different that I really don't know which part does what. I would love for someone to send me either an owner's manual or a service manual of this engine so I can get acquainted with it. I am sure I will have more questions in the near future but we can start from here

This a great site with alot of helpful people. I also have a M/C470 in my 24 foot tritoon. They are a little different but once you understand the cooling system and the electrical system the rest is pretty standard if anything on a boat is standard.
This site used to have the manuels posted but I believe they were removed for some reason. I download mine and burned it to a CD. If you have no luck finding a manuel let me know and I will make a copy and send it to you.
