How to Change Lower Unit Gear Lube

The lower unit gear lubricant in most outboard motors and sterndrives should be changed annually, or every 100 hours. For many boat owners changing the gear lube is part of an annual service performed before winter or off-season lay-up, along with an engine oil-and-filter change for four-stroke outboards and sterndrives.
