Helpful, but confusing and not 100% accurate
on August 29, 2008
I started out as mechanically competent but outboard-ignorant with a new boat and old motor. This book is sold at the Mercury dealer, where the "Official Shop Manual" logo on the cover is, IMHO, somewhat misleading. Since it covers a raft of models, it's hard to deal with one specific motor, but if you dig hard enough you can find what you need, mostly. As in most books of its type, electrical diagrams are a little skimpy. Used in conjunction with a good on-line forum for DIY mechanics, it's worth the price.
