Book Excerpt: 1990-1993 Mercury Outboard 3-275 HP Repair Manual



Breaker point contacts are normally light gray in color. Dirty breaker point contacts should be cleaned with a suitable contact file. Do not use emery cloth to dress or clean breaker point contacts.

Badly burned or pitted breaker points should be replaced (Chapter Seven). Badly burned or pitted points usually indicate a problem elsewhere in the ignition system such as a defective condenser, improper point gap adjustment or oil or other contamination on the contact surfaces. Refer to Chapter Seven for breaker point replacement and adjustment procedures.


If a no-spark condition is present, disconnect the stop switch and recheck the spark. If acceptable spark is now present at the spark plug, test the switch as follows:

  1. Connect an ohmmeter between the disconnected stop switch wires. See Figure 10.
  2. With the switch button not depressed, the meter should indicate no continuity.
  3. Depress the switch button while noting the ohmmeter. With the button depressed, the meter should indicate continuity.
  4. Replace the stop switch if test results are not as specified.

The primary ignition coil is located under the flywheel.
  1. Remove the flywheel as described in Chapter Eight.

  2. Refer to Figure 10 and disconnect the primary coil black / white wire.

  3. Calibrate an ohmmeter on the R X 1 scale. Connect the ohmmeter positive (+) lead to the disconnected black/white wire and the negative (-) lead to the coil ground.

  4. Primary coil resistance should be 1.5 ohms.

  5. Replace the coil if resistance is not as specified. See Chapter Seven.

Glad to have this one.
Paid for the book easily by fixing just the stator. Starter motor and rectifier were bad too. Also able to test all start and ignition components with excellent advice and illustrations. Better than I could have asked for. Fast delivery saved time and now have it for any future work. Sure wish I had found this before wasting money on a 3-day download scam.
