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.

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.

      Pretty sure I know who that is. Won't mention any names tho. What did he get busted for?
