Full StarFull StarFull StarEmpty StarEmpty StarMissing diagram
by Michael from Lake Park, Florida on August 11, 2015
Manual was good to assist in troubleshooting, but my issue was that there wasn't a wiring diagram for the instrument panel for my year boat. I had diagrams for the engine harness, but all the diagrams for the helm panel did not match. I was able to figure out what diagram was similar, but I don't think I should have.

Full StarFull StarFull StarFull StarFull StarVolvo Penta Stern Drives 2003-2012 Seloc Repair Manual review
by John from Oyster Bay, New York on May 29, 2015
The SELOC Repair Manual contains in detail everything you need for a do-it-yourself maintenance job and much more. I like the classification of various jobs by the grade of difficulty and the graphic presentations with lots of pictures pinpointing the location of various parts. One minor thing I would have liked to see better is the subtitles for the various boat models to be highlighted in bigger bold letters. It is sort of difficult to find the model you are interested in, in my case 3.0L engine and SX-A drive. Other than that it is an excellent source of information for the DIY individual. JU, New York

by Ron from Cochrane, Alberta on October 11, 2014
An equivalent manual from Volvo would be triple the price and not offer me anything more than the Seloc manual for my stern drive. Highly recommended.

Full StarFull StarFull StarEmpty StarEmpty StarOutdrive drain plugs don't match the book
by Paul from Waverly, Kansas on September 15, 2014
I think the book is very good, I only have one concern. It shows the outdrive has 4 plugs that require o'rings, but in reality it only has three. The one I call normal for draining the outdrive is not on this outdrive. The only way to drain it is to pull the propellers and drain it out of that plug. Might help others if you updated this or at least research it to see why the discrepency? Paul Clarkson 620-343-0506

by Robert from Apollo Beach, Florida on May 07, 2012
I was fairly impressed with the Volvo Penta manual. As a "technical guy" I like to know HOW things work the way they do. Unfortunately, this manual doesn't necessarily cover the HOW'S. All in all, some detailed instructions on most of the maintenance items. The weakest part of the manual is troubleshooting. I understand that the manufacturer's want you to bring your problems to certified technicians.

As a newbee to Evinrude outboards, this guide/manual is educating me to the many questions I have about the engine. So far I'm extremely satisfied and happy with the manual.

by David from Hedgesville, West Virginia on April 13, 2012
A total waste of money. Very little information and what there is is largely generic. Almost no product specific information. No exploded assembly diagrams or anything close. Do not buy this trash.
