Up for sale, we are offering an original, 1956 Sears, Roebuck & Co., Owner's Manual &  Parts List for Elgin, 7.5 HP Outboard Motor, model 571.58761. This is a used booklet from a local marine and small motor business filled with great information and diagrams relevant to these classic outboard motors and accessories. 


While transporting these brochures, catalogues and sell sheets, we noted a oil smell that had permeated the paper, reminding me of the dark small rooms that were so full of the racks and boxes and bits and pieces that made up the old stock of this business. It reminds me of the marinas I use to hang around as a kid.


  Condition: This booklet is used and soiled with an ink date notation on the cover, however it is easily readable and useable. Please note: The staples are missing but all pages are present.

Please enlarge the photos to determine the condition of the guide.


**Please note: The photos are watermarked with the "Black Cat Antiques" logo, however the logo is superimposed on the photos only and not actually present on the manuals.


Size: The manual measures approximately 11" high by 8.5" wide.

 No. of Pages: 14


Be sure to check the photographs for relevant information such as makes and models covered.

Please be aware that some of these booklets may include information about other products that the manufactures sold, expect a little salesmanship about lawnmowers, chainsaws and such in some of the manuals. This can give you an interesting glimpse of other items of the period.


 We do combine shipping to save you money wherever we can. It takes us a bit to pull the appropriate manuals and get back to you with a combined cost. If you are in a rush, pay for the individual shipping and we will refund the difference once packed for shipping.

Erroneous information
The SEARS Elgin 7.5 horsepower outboard, model number 581.58761, according to all other records that I have found, was actually manufactured and sold originally through SEARS in 1953--NOT in 1956 as you have stated on this ad--the manufacturer for SEARS was West Bend, and all of their SEARS motors at that time began with 571. and ended with a 5 digit number--this number denotes the size and date manufactured and there are accurate lists available through many different sources--This detail is important since the parts for some were different, and if someone used this list to order or look for parts for a 1956 they could easily end up with the wrong part--your error does matter--
