[Ed: I'm resending this message by hand. It was submitted by new list
member Tom Klauber (he subscribed to the "digest" version of the list,
and his submission was refused because I had neglegted to tell the
list management software that submissions to the list should be
accepted from people subscribed to the digest. Tom had contacted
me with the idea of forming a club, and I suggested he join the list
and share his ideas there.... (er here!)]

Bob; I'm new to this site and would like to suggest to you and other
interested readers the SELOC Tune Up and Repair Manuals. You can get
one by calling Boating Solutions at 1-877-286-1172 and ask for OMC
Stern Drive 1964-1986 -#004-7(3400). It's very good for engine and
foot repairs.You can find them on the internet. CLYMER has a similar
manual out in most boating stores but I like the SELOC version better.
I have 2 1969 Evinrude Rogues and use these manuals to do my own
