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. Changing the lubricant is a pretty easy task for the do-it-yourself boat owner.

In this how-to video, Scott Glorvigen of Wired2Fish and the Lund Boats Pro Staff demonstrates how to change the gearcase lube in a Mercury Pro Kicker outboard, and the procedure is the same for most outboards and sterndrives.

Why are there different oil weights for motorcycles?

Air-cooled V-twin motorcycle engines can get extremely hot, and they require a thicker viscosity oil with great film strength to ensure adequate engine protection.
