Lower Unit Oil

Recommended Posts

I have always put in 80w-90 into my lower units, I just bought 75w-90 full synthetic oil. is this OK to use in a lower unit? I chickened out on my 200 HPDI and put in 80w-90. so I still have 2 full quarts of the 75w-90, was wondering if anyone has used this, and is it OK to use in a marine lower unit.

🤔 A sign you shouldn't be running snowmobile oil in a chainsaw perhaps?  Naw.  I'm sure you're extending the the chainsaws lifespan by having it run fast.

 

I have heard that regular auto gear lube of any weight doesn't have the anti foaming and water suspending capabilities of a marine grade oil specific for use in outboard lower units.

    • The first forum I was ever a member of was an outdoor forum associated with the Outdoor News. It wasn't very busy and someone in there posted a link to FM and I tried it and it was much busier than the Outdoor News forum. I made an account on FM but at some point I forgot my password and had to make a new account so I would say I was here at least several months before.
    • Starting to get some finished. I gave it a taste test. My wife, son and neighbor gave the thumbs up.

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.
