ABOS Marine Blue Book offers the option to purchase a print guide, a CD, a data extract or online access to determine the outboard motor's value. Nadaguides is free to use. The values are organized by categories of marine watercraft and outboard motors, and are separated by zip code. Select the "Outboard Motors" category and the manufacturer, make and model of the motor. The site displays the retail price and the low and high list prices for the outboard motor.

    To repair an outboard motor that has loose throttle cables, first check to see if the throttle is in the right position and then move the throttle back and forth. This helps to get the boat back to the dock, but it still needs professional tightening at the marina.

    How do you start a manual outboard engine?

    A:

    To start a manual outboard engine, be sure the shift lever is in neutral, pull out the choke and turn the hand grip until the arrow aligns with the start position. Pull the starter rope slightly until it is taut, then pull harder to start the engine. An operator should always start the engine on land instead of in the boat to avoid falling overboard while pulling the starter rope.
