On-line source for OMC specs?

A friend of mine will be doing some work on my 1992 Johnson FastStrike. Is there an on-line source for specs such as torque settings, piston sizes, firing order, etc? I am no mechanic so I hope I've made my requirements clear- sort of a Haynes Repair for boats?

Thanks for any info.

Thanks, Scott-

It's a 175. It has suddenly developed a loud knocking noise and I fear the worst. Is there a sequence of tests I can do to try and narrow down the cause of the knocking?

If its knocking dont do anything more than pull the heads
and see how much damage has been done to the
cylinders.
The most common problem is aluminum transferring from
the pistons to the cyl walls.
Either from overheating or lack of lubrication.
Do not trust the VRO. Check the Water pump and all water
passages.
