Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

    I know this outboard is a two stroke using a 50 to1 oil/gas mixture but isn't there still oil in the engine lower case? No filter, no drain plug, I can't find anything that I would consider lower engine case oil or filter.
    Am I missing something here? Does this thing get lubricated from the oil/gas mixture?

    There is a drain/fill plug at the bottom of the LU and a level plug at the area just above the cavitation plate.

    This holds the shift york/fork and if you do it you will have to disassemble the whole LU to put it back.

    The LU shall have gearlube SAE 80-90 or equal. Not with EP additive, because it will affect the bronze bushings.

      The crank, bearings and the piston walls get lubed from the 50-1

      NO other oil in the top of the engine.

      ​NO filter other than one in the fuel pump, unless someone has installed one in the fuel line???

      ​Like Nordin said the lower unit where the prop is has oil/gear oil.
      It has a slotted screw on the side of the gear case.

      The drain is on the bottom.
      ​It could have a plastic washer to seal it??
      Replace when changing oil.
      Use Mercury seals.
      80/90 gear oil.

      Buy American made Cars and Trucks!!!Towing insurance for a boat,a GREAT thing.
      ​Tools to make my life easier: Battery tester, die grinder, temp.gun, compression tester, DVA meter.
