WTB - Mercury Service Manual for 1985 90hp 6 cyl.

Postby OldKenT » Mon May 22, 2017 4:32 pm

I recently purchased a 1985 Newport with its original 1985 Mercury 6 cylinder ELPT 90hp motor, S/N A150399, and am looking for the Mercury Marine Service Manual which covers this motor. If you have one for sale, or know the Mercury publication number for the correct manual, please let me know.

Ken,

Check ebay and they seem to NOT have the Mercury factory, but rather Clymer and Seloc manuals.

Here's the Seloc I found: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mercury-90-300- ... Ip&vxp=mtr

Thanks, Pete. I am trying to get the Mercury manual because I have seen comments that Seloc and Clymer are sometimes wrong in their instructions. I have no personal knowledge of that, but when I have used Mercury manuals I have found them to be excellent in drawings and instructions. If someone finds the correct Mercury manual number, please let me know.

Ken,

I wasn't sure how "bad" the off brand manuals were.

Sounds like the old Chilton's manuals: "Remove engine, rebuild to spec, replace engine...." ARGH!
