I'd like to start doing my own repairs on my 1993 175hp Evi. I have no experience in this area, but am slowly gaining self confidence (ha!ha!).
Subsequently I would like the "Expert's" opinion on the best manual out there and where I can get it.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Run a search on ebay. I found a shop manual for my 225 Evinrude. Far superior to the Clymer or Seloc manuals.

Sea Hag,

I bought a new factory shop manual for my 200 HP Mercury from the following:

www.maxrules.com/fixbooks.html

If you e-mail them and tell them exactly what you are looking for (factory shop manual) they may have one. My new manual was $44.00 plus shipping. They also have owner's manuals. Hope this helps.

SeaHag,

I would recommend you get both the factory service manual and an aftermarket manual like the Clymer or Seloc (or both).

Neither type of manual has all the information you may want, but the combination of the two may.

I have several manuals for different motors and have found the aftermarket ones to be a bit “thin” at times as they cover quite a few different models of motors whereas the factory manuals are more specific to a particular motor. On the other hand, the factory manuals skip whole subjects because I think it is assumed a professional mechanic already knows the basics.

Ebay remains an excellent source fort old manuals at good prices but, of course, you can just order them new.
