This is my first time on the forum. I have been lurking for awhile and you guys have answered a lot of my questions without me having to write in. But I have a question that I haven't seen. I recently bought a 2006 170 Montauk with 90-HP Mercury. My problem is, I can't find a repair/maint. manual for the 2006 motor. Would the 2004-2005 work just as well? I thank you for any responses.

Have you tried your Mercury dealer? I'd be amazed if the
manuals weren't available seven months into 2006 (when the
engines came out well back in 2005).
And WHICH 90 Merc is important.
And the factory manuals are better. Seloc, and especially Clymer

Jon, did your 2006 boat come with the new generation Verado-based Merc 90 or its predecesor (90-HP Mercury w/Yamaha powerhead). It is important to make this distinction as the new Verado-based engine is a whole new animal.

Thanks for your replies. My motor has the Yamaha powerhead.

Since you have the Yamaha-based engine, the answer is yes, the 2004-2005 manuals will be just fine. There was no big design change on that engine until the Verado-based block came in. Best thing to do is locate your engine serial number on the little sticker affixed to the engine. Then look in one of those earlier manuals you have access to - they will list serial number "ranges" covered by the manual. This will tell you definitively if the manual covers yours.

You ought to be able to walk into any Mercury dealer and buy a copy of the factory service manual. A good dealer would have these on the shelf. I walked into my local Mercury dealer and bought a factory service manual for a 1976 engine! You'd think finding a current model year engine would be much easier.

You can order it through Mercury Marine online, comes from your local Mercury Dealer, put your serial# in and pay $71+. I've ordered alot from Mercury that way. Jim
