Hey
So our 1st boat is a 94 sea ray 170 signature with a mercruiser 3.0 alpha 1 gen 2 outdrive.
engine serial number on flame arrest cover is worn and cant read. I snapped a pic of the plate by the starter F139552. I have been all over duck duck go and marineengine.com trying to find some manuals but this particular serial isn't found. Now for my 1st question, can anyone point me in the right direction?
Thanks!

Welcome to iboats.

1st answer. :)

That is a 1994 3.0L (115hp).
The engine manual you are looking for is #13, and for the drive, #14.

You can get a new one from Merc (way too $pendy), or ebay.

Thanks! now for question 2, I opened the ebay link and it says a 1989 outboard?
Yeah, I saw that too (and laughed). Ignore it, it's someone who doesn't have a clue about marine engines.
