    Post Mercury Mariner 8hp 2 cylinder 1989 Factory service Manual? Week Spark.

    Hi, I would like to know if anyone has a factory service manual for this motor Serial #0C140802 or if you know where I can get a used manual ( I have the Selco manual it does me no good to vague. My problem is week spark on top cylinder causing the plug to foul I think I need to replace the switch box the coils tested good. I used a spark tester and got no spark to jump the gap so I switched coils and got a spark the engine will run with the week spark intermittently.

    Thanks, but I should have said that I already have the Selco Manual and frankly it does not have the information on my motor that I would need to properly diagnose this problem. No schematic or details on my specific power head. It's kind of a generic manual covering about 6 different versions of my outboard and very vague in some areas.

    Then the best thing to do is go t the dealer and order one. When I get a manual, it only goes away when the motor goes.

    Thanks but I am trying not to spend $80 dollars on a manual if I can get a used one or borrow one.
