1965-89 Mercury repair manual is ok and could be better
by Lee from Harvey, North Dakota on November 04, 2013
I found the manual to be of some help, but I had to search around in the manual quite a bit, to find th information I was looking for. I just wanted to change the water pump and have the tourque settings. It would be nice if the manual would be broken into sections, like water pump replacement, instead of having to read over the whole section on tearing down the whole lower unit, to get that information. I didn't want to tear the whole lower unit apart, just change the water pump. I got the work done but with alot of skipping around section 9 for the information. Would be nice if it was set up like an auto repair manual, with specific sections.

Too many motors covered
by Tom from Newcastle, California on March 25, 2013
There are so many motors covered and so many different models that none of the pictures were clearly the models I had. Mine is a 20hp 1988 Merc but none of the discriptions or Pics correctly discribed my lower end. Lots of discussion about things not relevant to my situation.

Not All Motors Included
by Janice from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin on October 20, 2012
upon reading the information on the outboards motors one would think it containers information about all Mercury Outboard Motors from 1965 -1985 . We have a 1986 Mercury 2 stroke 20 hp motor. We could not find a diagram that was exclusively about a 1986 Mercury 2 stroke 20 hp motor. The serial numbers did not include ours. So although there are many motors covered inside the manual with detailed information on them, it does not cover ALL motors as you would think. Now i have a useless manual, and ended up having to take the motor to a facility to have it fixed because no where could i find the information i was looking for.

Good reference - a little dated but so it the motor
by John from Charleston, South Carolina on October 06, 2012
I have a few other more recent Seloc manuals for other motors that do a better job of presenting the trouble shooting trees. But, all the needed info is in this one. 'Just takes a little more reading. With this manual I was able to resurrect my 1969 Merc 110, one more time. 'Was afraid to tear down the ignition without some idea of how it was put together. The manual had all the required info. and the old girl is pushing the boat around again.

Not a factory publication
by Stephen from Wilmington, Illinois on June 14, 2012
The publication provides general information on the Mercury outboards but it is more on the lines of Chilton's publications say on Ford or VW. Lots of old blurry photos instead of diagrams or exploded diagrams like you would see in a OEM manual. If you never had an experience working with Mercury outboards this would be an OK book to get you going and provide an introductory level of knowledge for the care and feeding of you outboard.

Not What I Hoped
by Benjamin from Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin on September 03, 2014
Seloc repair manual (PN-1404-E) was not all that I hoped it would be. It doesn't have exploded views for everything in the motor, assumes too many things and doesn't cover smaller items like the choke solenoid assembly or throttle cable and shift cable disassembly and assembly procedures at the motor. Granted, I'm new to marine engines, but when a part that is unique to the engines is mentioned out of the blue without any description or picture it's not very helpful. Many of the the images are very poor quality. So poor in fact that Seloc must have hand drawn in some lines on their master copy. Although it's easier to see what is in the picture, it's really tacky, especially considering what it costs. I don't know what the Clymer manual is like, but I'm guessing it's better than the Seloc. If you want some cheap help, go to oldmercs.com and download the appropriate Parts Manual. It's about $6 and not only gives you an exploded view of all the parts, but also all the part numbers, which is very helpful in making sure you order the right parts. The online subscription isn't all that great either. No improvements over the book and the same problems. You just have access to it before you receive the hard copy. I'd say, spend the same amount and try the Clymer along with the Parts Manual from oldmercs.com. My two cents.

Boat Motor Repair Manual Online 1 Year Subscription - Seloc
by Teddy from Markham, Ontario on July 31, 2014
Topics well organized. Easy to locate subjects of interest. Good and concise materials with pictures for illustration. Problem with difficulty to capture materials on printout, no bookmarks and indexes. You need to familiar with topic arrangement. Once you get that, then it is easier to navigate the online book.

The information you need no matter where you are...
by Steven from Toronto, Ontario on July 26, 2014
When I conduct repairs on older engines that are no longer directly supported by the manufacturer I tend to be on site and at the dock. All I need is my laptop and tether to my cell phone for data and I can access the reference information I need to troubleshoot practically any motor on the spot - without carting along a pile of manuals. Seloc is an important component in my mobile repair kit.

Good stuff for a full restore
by Mike from El Cajon, California on December 25, 2013
I really like the product. Its full of information. I have only one issue, the parts page isnt very friendy. There should be a drawing of all the components then the list of parts below so you can pick them out easier. Other than that, the site is great. Diagrams are very good. Access was instant to the site as advertised. Mike

by Daryle from Mounds View, Minnesota on October 19, 2013
This is the second time I have ordered a Seloc online subscription. First was on my eighty hp merc and now on my OMC cobra 4.3 lt. Within three hours of using the manual, I saved two to three hundred dollars repairing my stater and winterizing my unit. Thanks again.

disappointing quality
by Christophe from st-Jean-Baptiste, Quebec on July 27, 2013
I buy this manual because I rebuilt a Mercury engine and I wanted the torques and the specification in first. In second, I wanted all the step to rebuilt. But I'm really disappointed because the manual is not well done like a real manual. I don't now if the real Seloc manual are better but I am disappointed by the online manual. We need more picture for rebuilt!!!

Vary informative but it's not 100% model pacific
by Matthew from Athens, New York on July 01, 2013
Vary imformative manual and it has given me the procedures that I needed to perform repairs on my 1973 65hp Evinrude triumph outboard. I gave it a 4 star because I don't think it is a one modle manual. It has late model and early models combined in one manual and I was hoping for more of a O.E.M original for 1973 models 65372/65373 only. I just noticed pictures that are not for my outboard.but other than that it's worth the money for a year subsection and you can just print as you go. I would recommend Seloc to any boat owner or mechanic.

Good Source for Quick Information
by Alan from Austin, Texas on October 15, 2012
For anyone that has some experience with mechanical troubleshooting and repairs, this manual is comprehensive and very good for getting quick information. I had no trouble finding all I needed to know for my Force 120 carburetor rebuild, and I didn't have to wait for a book in the mail. I had no problems with any of the pictures, the navigation was clear and easy, and there are good troubleshooting tips. If you are planning on a motor overhaul, get a paper book, it will simplify your information and give you an on bench shop reference ... other than that this manual will work just fine for parts identification and replacement procedures. As far as torque specs go, they are there for many things but not all, use common sense and don't forget you are working with Aluminum parts. If you are needing comprehensive torque tables, find and buy the paper book.

Online Repair Manual
by Tracy from Milford, Ohio on September 07, 2011
The online version of the repair manual is somewhat difficult to navigate through, it would be much better as a PDF file in whole instead of broken into pieces or at least a choice between the two. Not all of the remove and replace instructions include torque specifications. Information contained in the manual seems to be pretty good as far as instructions are concerned. I believe given the choice between the online manual and a hard copy book I would choose the book instead.

Perfect for basic information
by Jason from Portland, Oregon on March 28, 2011
I ordered this online manual and had access to the information I need almost instantly. I know very little when it comes to mechanic work, but it gave me what I needed to fix my engine. The information provided was pretty basic so don't expect much if you are doing some complicated repairs. However, if you just need to know where parts are located and other basics procedures, then it is money well spent.

Almost Excellent
by Christopher from Seneca, South Carolina on May 20, 2010
I was able to login easily and found exactly the schematic I needed for my engine. Browsed other areas(maint sched parts) and found the information pricing correct and timely. I would have given it 5-stars, but the .pdf files are sometimes hard to read. If you enlarge them you lose the detail you may need (specifically wiring color codes- (difficult to see on most dwgs, I guess.)
