This small book features notes on how to service, diagnose and repair Outboard Motors, Stern Drives and Inboard marine engines. Coverage includes: winter lay-up and spring commissioning procedures; tune-ups, carburetor rebuilds and water pump repairs.
It also features a special section with forms to record work completed. Be advised this is not a shop manual, but instead a marine mechanic's notes on how a DIYer can accomplish these otherwise expensive procedures on his own.
