86 Mercury 2 Stroke 50 hp

Would anyone have a service manual and an owners manual for said outboard laying around collecting dust?

that is not a "go super fast" motor, put some fiber reeds in it and pull out the stops, thats it. jack it up so the center of the prop shaft is even with center of the speed toob. then look around for a OMC 3cyl Moda.

Thanks Fred. My budget (non existent) won't allow the purchase of another motor for now. However, when things get a bit better, I will be looking. What could one expect to pay for a well done OMC ? And where can you find a reliable source for them?

Actually, I am fairly outboard ignorant and I want to read up about maintenance and operation. Since money is tight and always a huge factor (for me anyway), I like to do proper maintenance and stay on top of things, thereby saving dollars on repairs due to neglect or improper maintenance.

Anyone have any recommendations of a good shop in the Annapolis, MD area, that will treat me and my old Mercury right? I would like a competent shop to look over my outboard. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
