I found this book to be very useful. I has great color and B&W photos of the details and clear instructions for repairs. It includes complete engine and outdrive disassembly and assembly. I took my boat to the dealer two times and they still did not get it fixed correctly. I read this manual and did the tune-up and my boat runs super now. Most marine dealers are not interested in repairing older Yamaha stern drives so this manual becomes vital if you want the job done right. I have not found any mistakes or omissions. I give this book 5 stars.
I learned that this particular stern-drive setup is very rare, and few people are familiar with working on it... I used this book to do some minor over-haul work, then kept referring back during a major overhaul. Used it so much, I wore it out and needed to buy another one. There may be other companies out there who make better books - not sure, but this is the only one I've found for Yamaha, and I treat it as my bible. It also touches on and warns about the common mistakes and misconceptions from people as well - you can tell it was definitely written by an expert on these engines. If you have a yamaha stern drive, you have no idea how much time and money this book can save you by giving you the information you need.
Order this repair manual to fix up my project boat. It was everything that I needed it to be. Book was difficult to find and this one was new and very reasonable.
