Oil Fill Instructions Lower Unit
How to Instructions for Filling the Stern Drive with Oil
The gear housing oil circulates both
through the upper and the lower unit. Make sure to only use the lower drain fill hole to pump the lubricant in. After draining
all the fluid, begin by removing the vent screw on the starboard side of the upper housing. Note – if you notice an
excessive amount of metal filings in the lube, or if the lube is milky in color this indicates some damage to the internal
mechanical components or water leaking into the case. These are both issues that must be addressed immediately as they could
lead to partial or complete outdrive failure. Fill the lube through the lower drain hole until it begins to come out
of the upper vent screw. Never fill the case from the upper vent screw down as this will allow for air pockets to travel down,
creating a false reading on the oil level.
