Good morning, my name is Jason.

The manual is part number 90-976583. You can order it from any Mercury dealer. If you click this link below this is one example of where you can get it.

I think that should do it. But I do want to make sure you are happy with my service before you go. If you had a further question on the issue by all means feel free to ask. If not, Just in case you do not understand the way the website works (and some folks do not). You do have to put forth a positive rating in order for it to credit me for helping you. When ratings are not done, the website simply keeps your deposit and they will not credit me. The ratings box is located at the top of the screen. To rate, you must select the star you wish and also confirm it. Please let me know if you run into any problems or errors when trying to do it. If you do have a problem, or if you can not see the ratings box which is at the top of the screen. Please reply back "I rate Jason's service _______" and fill in the blank.

Questions do not close out, so if you have to come back later on with follow up questions to the issue you still can even after doing a rating.

Thank you

Jason

The question mark at the end you didn't put in there, I did. I don't see a question from you other than "where can I get an orignal repair manual"

If you have additional questions can you please type them out in a clear and concise manner.
