Just wanted to pass on what I found this week,
some may have already found this, but here is
a link to purchase a PDF Download of a service manual.

http://www.tradebit.com/filesharing.php/search/0/service+manual+evinrude+e-tec

I downloaded the 75-90HP 2008 and it seems to be a good deal for $15

Anybody here download this yet?
Is this the Evinrude factory manual or a cheap, incomplete spin-off?

Yes, it's complete service manual such as original Evinrude's. The only problem is some photos are fuzzy (mostly screenshots from Evinrude diagnostics program), I can't see text on it.

Many people use this manual or this particular download?

Am I better off searching for the actual "hard" book?

Up to the individual but I prefer a hardcopy. They aren't that expensive in the scheme of things. No where near as potentially expensive as not being able to see something properly, not understanding and then getting it wrong. Send one of the dealers that offer their advice/time on this site an email and ask for a price.

Well I have a hard copy manual but just out of curiosity I click on the link and then on the manuals offered, but my firewall blocked it and advised me that the site had no security certificate and was potentially dangerous, so I closed the site, [eek]

If the link you were trying to access was an HTTPS site, it is fairly common that a non-certified security certificate is used. A certified security certificate often costs $5,000, and many sites employ secure HTTP or HTTPS protocol without investing in a $5,000 certificate. When I worked in corporate IT, we used HTTPS protocols for encryption and never bought a completely certified security certificate because we only needed to trust ourselves.

I have to wonder if the site you linked to is selling BRP's publications with BRP's blessing. They are a USA company, located in Delaware, according to the domain name registration. Apparently, if you want to do business with them via HTTP, you will have to ignore the advice you get from your computer firewall.

The 412 page, 38MB file downloaded from Tradebit quickly and easily for viewing my E-TEC model manual which costs  $24.95 and was paid for using my reasonably internet safe PayPal account which only has funds in it moments before they are used.    Downloaded file is indeed the full and correct BRP Evinrude Service Manual for my 2009 model E-TEC.

The image quality is mostly quite good delivered directly via the download in the popular, relatively safe Adobe Systems PDF format.  'Adobe Reader' is required for viewing. No file compression/expansion was needed and being in PDF, the file passed virus scanning.

It is thankfully not a simple optical scan of the paper version manual.  They obviously had and used access to a digital, color, high quality data file image of most all of the E-TECs original service manual content files.   Text, photos and tables show little/no blurriness, unusual aliasing or noteworthy image defects.  The screen shots of EV-Diag and some drawings for example though are marginal, but as they were likely meant by BRP simply for printed use and were not originally captured by BRP with future image bit reductions and a powerful PDF 'Zoom' feature in mind.

Only small negative I found is that the publication date of this BRP published service manual for my motor indicates the download file was made using the original service manual created in 2008 for my motor.  (I assume it not their fault as to my knowledge, BRP seemingly does add service manual addendums and does not ever update or correct the errors/omissions found within their various E-TEC service publications.  So far I am a happy customer and having a high image quality tablet always nearby, I prefer the screen images over paper.

(I too find major respected legitimate US based corporations these days sometimes do run their extensive websites absent of the HyperText Transfer Protocol Secure, aka HTTP-S registration/designation.)

Thanks Jimh, but like I said before I have a hard copy "manual" for my engine, I was just curious but I opted not to ignore the firewall warning

I would like to purchase a "hard" copy.  Not certain who to contact on this forum. My 115hp model # is listed on my profile. 
If anyone has one to sell please PM me.

Thanks!
