Saved A Few Dollars
By REAL Word - July 25, 2005
This book did help me to change a water pump in the lower unit successfully. It was
easy to follow once I idenitified which motor my boat had. Make sure you pay
close attention to the order you remove parts. The pictures are clear, however
they don't always show every small detail, especially when replacing washers, or
bolts. I saved over $200 dollars on one repair by purchasing the book. Looking
forward to saving a few more dollars when something else goes wrong.
I ordered this manual to assist me in the restoration of a 1970 boat with Mercruiser I/O thinking it would be much like a Mercruiser Manual I once owned. Much of the information I need such as location and operation of switches is not there. Other things such as the inner transom plate layout are absent as well. The photos are also very poor quality reproductions, many so dark you can't see the object in question. This manual may be okay for general information, but if you are attempting a rebuild and not totally used to knowing exactly what everything looks like, where it is placed and how it functions you will need another good source of information.
paid for itself the first use.

i have a 1990 mercrusier (gm) 5.7 l v8. bought it cause i was getting tired of paying people to do work on my boat engine. about a week after getting it , it showed me how to replace the thermostat , which cost me 25$ , that a mechanic would have charged me $200 to do, not including the aggravation of towing it to the mechanic. Also showed me the proper flow so i could backflush the engine the right way without flooding the engine. so it shows u what not to do to create yourself more problems.
