You should be able to get a manual from merc.
After market manuals appear on eBay,iboats.com
NAPA auto parts has manuals,though some branches don`t have a clue about their 600+ page marine products catalog.You can also find manuals at the library.
Basic maintenance normal use.Change the gearcase lube once a year.Make note of the condition of the old lube.milkyness indicates water contamination.Change plugs annually.Change the impeller every 2-4 years.If you don`t know the condition of the present impeller change it now.
Lube the various moving parts steering pivot,throttle etc. with some sort of water resistant grease.
