  • Repair manuals, which ones better?

    So I picked up a 1990 Evinrude eight horse and a 19 1976, 70 horse Johnson in the last week.
    i’m looking for a manual to cover these motors. And it looks like I have a choice between Seloc and Clymer.

    I bought a Seloc manual for my 76 Mercury 650 and found information on every other mercury motor of the era except MINE. Luck of the draw perhaps but I was disappointed.

    Generally speaking though, do you folks have a preference for being the most comprehensive?

    I suspect most will agree, neither worth the paper they're printed on....

    Factory service manuals can be gotten from Ken Cook

    Money spent @ Boat Restoration should be measured in Smiles & Pride SHOP IBOATS-BOAT SPECS-FORUM HELP-REPAIR/RESTO

        Save your Seloc and Clymer manuals for spare toilet paper.

              Doesn't work well for that either, Too slippery, and a paper cut could render one a Eunuch

                    Using a Dollar(3 quarters, 2 dimes, and a nickel) can be messy too
