A 2010 Evinrude E-TEC 115 horsepower outboard repair manual is a book of service and repair instructions. The repair manual is used to restore an outboard motor back to working order.

Whether your objective is to perform routine maintenance or repair work on a outboard, it is critical you select the correct type of manual for the required job. There are 4 types of 2010 Evinrude E-TEC 115 HP outboard repair manuals:
1. Repair manual
An Evinrude ETEC outboard repair manual is a book with instructions on how to keep the outboard motor working properly. Repair manuals are aftermarket manuals not OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer).
Repair manuals are written specifically for backyard mechanics who do not possess professional experience in outboard mechanics.
Much like factory service manuals, repair manuals cover every aspect of maintenance and repair — complete disassembly and reassembly of the engine. Repair manuals typically contain high-quality photos and easy-to-follow step-by-step repair instructions
2. Factory service manual
Factory service manuals (FSM) are written and published by the outboard engine manufacturer.
Use a service manual to fix anything — whether to take apart the entire engine in order to examine it and repair it if needed or to carry out periodic routine inspection and maintenance, such as a tune-up. A service manual covers it all!
Originally factory service manuals were provided only to dealership technicians who already possess expert mechanical skills. But DIY enthusiast can use them too.
Factory service manuals get straight to the point and provide all of the same repair information repair manuals, such as step-by-step repair procedures, specifications, part numbers, dimensions and safety information.
3. Workshop manual
Workshop manuals, also referred to as shop manual or owner’s workshop manual, is an instructional booklet that focuses on maintenance and repair of an outboard motor.
It is a book giving information such as repair facts and instructions for fixing or maintaining a machine. Generally it is written and published by a 3rd party publisher, meaning it is not an OEM product.
On the contrary, some manufacturers in different countries refer to workshop manuals or shop manuals, as factory service manuals.
4. Owner’s manual
A 2010 Evinrude E-TEC 115HP owner’s manual is not technically a “repair manual”. It is more of a user guide, user operation manual or owner’s instruction manual. The booklet is typically always supplied, free of charge, when the outboard is purchased.
An owner’s manual does not contain “repair information” but does include basic maintenance protocols and limited troubleshooting instructions. But it cannot be used to perform repair work on an outboard.
An owner’s manual contains topics like safety instructions, programing instructions, warranty information, installation instructions and user operating instructions.
Which manual is best for you?
Repair manuals can be expensive. They can rage from 30 to 50 bucks. They are good for people with limited mechanical knowledge. They have easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions and high-end photos to help you complete the repair job successfully.
Factory service manuals are not much different. But the manual assumes the user has some prior experience in outboard mechanics. But you can literally use a factory service manual to complete disassembly and reassembly your outboard.
Factory service manuals also include high-definition images. And best of all, they are available for instant download in pdf format or CD-ROM. They are also dirt cheap!
Workshop manuals, the 3rd party type, are typically vague and only really helpful for people performing basic maintenance or small repairs. They often don’t cost much, only available in paperback print form. So expect to wait a week or 2 for it to arrive in the mail.
