I've also had luck at my local library. They have quite a few outboard repair manuals you can check out. Good Luck!

You may even be able to find a dealership repair manual on E-bay.

I have had great luck finding snowmobile shop manuals for all makes and models back to the late 60s there, I would assume there is a supply of outboard repair manuals there as well.

The Clymer manuals are very good although they tend to generalize many similar years together. If there is something unique or original to a specific model, they will probably miss it. On my snowmobiles, it was some safety switching that Clymer never touched on, the dealer manual had it and how to properly set them as well.

I bought a pdf manual from a guy who often lists on Craigs. It's about 4,000 pages and covers Johnson/Evinrude 56-01. He also sells on ebay under the name pdfmanualmaster.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
