is there some place that i can download a manual for this motor so that I can adjust the neutral and forward switches?
You are looking for this manual "Service Manual Mercury Outboards 1965 and Prior : C-90-25500" Shop around for the cheapest price.
The WH-6 is supposed to be similar to the Mercury Mark 6.
