Small Engine Repair Reference Center

Do you have a boat, motorcycle, ATV, personal watercraft, or even just a lawnmower or weedeater? Do you like fixing those things yourself, or would you like to learn how? Our new database, Small Engine Repair Reference Center, can help. It gives you access to electronic versions of over 450 repair manuals covering all kinds of small engines, and even a few large ones, like tractors. The complete list of engine types it covers includes:
  • Air-Cooled Engines
  • ATVs
  • Chain Saws
  • Commercial Mowers
  • Diesel Engines
  • Farm Tractors
  • Generators
  • Motorcycles
  • Marine (boats)
  • Outdoor Power Equipment
  • Personal Watercraft/Jet Ski
  • Riding Lawn Mowers
  • Rotary Tillers
  • Snowmobiles
  • Snowthrowers
  • String Trimmers & Blowers
  • Walk-Behind Mowers
  • Yard & Garden Tractors
To get started with Small Engine Repair Reference Center (SERRC), go to the library's homepage at www.mytpl.org. Click on Research in the navigation bar, and then click either Databases by Name or Databases by Subject. SERRC will be in listed in alphabetical order in one, and under Auto and Small Engine Repair in the other. When you click the link, you'll be asked to enter your library card number. This will take you to a page that looks like this:


Now you can click on the type of engine you want to repair. This will bring you to a page with a list of manufacturers.


When you click on one of these, you'll see a list of engine types and years, as in the example below, which just shows part of the list for Evinrude/Johnson motors.


These links will bring you to pages from service manuals. They're PDFs, so they look just like the pages from the manual, complete with images and diagrams. You can download them, print them, or email them to anyone who also has a Terrebonne Parish Library card. If you prefer to search by keyword, you can do that in the search box at the top of the page. If you have any questions, please call the Reference Department at 876-5861, option 2. Good luck with your repairs!

Thank you for sharing the information.

Engines or re-built engines are helping a lot in installing or repairing the vehicles. I would like to tell that I recently came across a site called country sales and service who is providing the services of rebuilt engines for mowers, pavers, sweepers, tractors etc.
