    Default Mercruiser 165 4 cyl

    Hey all,
    I just bought a 1987 Baretta SS with a Mercruiser 165 4 cyl, and guess what? No manuals! So my question for today is how much oil and what type of oil should I change with? If someone could give me some help that would be great! I've been combing the web and haven't turned anything up yet...
