I'm often asked if there is a good web site for information on outboard motors. Perhaps the best site I can think of for information on outboards of all stripes is the Antique Outboard Motor Club, Inc. home page. The AOMC is the largest club in the world dedicated to preserving and restoring old outboard motors.
The web page is "minimalist" but has some things of interest, including featured articles, sections on local chapters, and a really good "Frequently Asked Questions" section.
The best part of the site, however, is the "Free Classifieds" link, which in actuality leads to an active and interesting forum on outboard motors. On this board, non-members can ask questions and hopefully get some answers to their queries, as well as buy and sell parts and full motors.
The club itself is well worth joining even if you have only a passing interest in outboard motors. You can join the AOMC by Clicking Here.
