maintenance manual for 234 FSX

Recommended Posts

where can I purchase a manual to show what parts are needed to do a spring & fall tune up / oil change/ etc


I don't know which boat or engine you have. I have a Volvo Penta. I purchased Volvo Penta Stern Drive Sop Manual by Clymer http://www.clymer.com. The first printing was 1997 and the last that's in my manual is 2006. My manual covers 1994-2000. I have a 2000 242CR.


It covers the engine and tuneup specs, trim systems, outdrive, and it should have what you're looking for.


I would do the final tuning with the outdrive in the water, not on muffs because they have BTDC degrees that the engine should be running at and around 2500 rpm. I don't want to run the engine about 1000 rpm on the muffs. I don't think the seawater/freshwater pump can draw enough water from the muff at 2500 rpm.


Read your owner's manual for starting the engine and it should tell you the max rpm that you should run the engine at when the boat is out of the water and using the muffs or rubber cups that are attached to a garden hose.

The manual for the boat is posted in this forum here: http://forums.montereyboats.com/index.php?showtopic=391


However, it appears you are asking about the engine and outdrive. Mine is a Mercruiser, so yours might be too. You may be able to find generic manuals for your model online. Specific parts will be based on the serial number of your engine and outdrive respectively.
