Any websites ya'll can give me to do a little research. Was given an old Merc outboard and would love to have a service manual for it and also where to order parts. Can post pics tonight when I get home.

Thanks Checkmate! I will burn through some time on these sites...It really is a cool looking old thing. Can't wait to bring it back to life and make it pretty.

Thanks I figured out its a 1958 Silent 6 which is actually a 5.9 horse. Either gonna build a stand for it and turn it into a vintage blender or buy a little tiny baby boat and go fishing!

COOL! www.oldmercs.com for parts. if it has the scintilla ign it might get a little pricey to fix, but they were a sweet running little motor. I have a bunch of old mercs. Feel free to pm me if you need any info or tips.

Thanks man! Thought this would both be educational plus a good way to stay outta trouble this winter. Guy that gave it to me said clean the carb then try to start. It was running not long ago.
