Look under the foot of the lower unit on one side of the nose cone. Slotted head screw with magnet. This one is used for draining and filling with the top one being the indicator for it being full.

How do you change the lower unit oil on a 1989 Force 85hp outboard

Hi. on the lower unit you will see two screw heads, one above the other. these are the top and bottom openings to the oil reservoir. Since you are probably winterizing I would get a bucket and a flat blade screw driver and drain all of tha old out. Chances are there will be some water mixed in with it. Then get a new bottle of lower unit oil and squeeze it all into the bottom hole while using some force to prevent it from leaking out. Once it is all in, replace the top screw and then the bottom screw. That's it. Happy boating.

4 thumbs up please. Joe

How do I check the oil level in the lower unit of a 70 hp Johnson outboard?

remove the bottom drain screw first then place a tube of the proper lower unit oil in it. then remove the top screw and gently squeeze the tube of oil and when full it will slowly come out the top drain hole. when it does replace the lower plug first then the top plug second. make sure the seals are in good shape and plan on changing the oil in the lower unit yearly for proper maintainence. make sure you buy oil designed for your particular type of motor. good luck.

How to change oil in a 2004 merc outboard 4st 9.9hp

There should be 2 drian plug screws on the right side of the lower unit. Remove both of them and let the old oil runout. After it is drained then get some new lower unit grease in a plastic tube and fill the lower unit from the bottom drain hole until it comes out of the top hole. Then you have to QUICLKY replace the bottom screw and then replace the top screw. If the old oil is milky looking then you had water in it. Hope this helps you, Jeepfxr

I just bought a 150 yamaha motor and i need to change the oil all i see is the oil level screw and can i use car oil 10.30 is their a oil filter thanx

Are you changing the leg oil? if so you will need a pump in order to do so. The top screw is a vent hole and the bottom on the leg is the add & drain hole. Pump the oil in the bottom of the leg until the oil starts to come out of the vent hole. Leg oil is 90w

Ok..been told that in a 1976 65hp mercury outboard the drain screw in the lower unit is also the fill does the oil drain?wont there be a vacuum that will hold it in?

Not True look closer up higher is another screw, take it out and then take out the bottom one to drain. You fill from the bottom hole until oil comes out the top hole,reinstall the top screw first hand tight and then put in the bottom screw and tighten. Jim Fowler

I have a 1976 65hp mercury outboard how do i change the oil

The drain/fill hole are the same. Put a coffee can or something like that to measure the amont of oil that comes out. Check with a boat parts, or marine or sporting goods section of biggy store. They (at least to) make a pump assembly with hose and threaded end that fits into the hole for the lower unit screw. the other part of the pump fits in a gear oil quart bottle. 80 or 90 is no matter, but needs to say marine grade or suitable for marine use. Nothing special, Penzoil for sure and I think a company Lubrite plus many others make an OK oil. Anyway, put the pump in the bottle and put back in as much as drained out. The level may be marked on the side of the lower unit. If you don't get almost as much out as you put in, check for leaky seal too.

Don' know what fluids to use for engine or lower unit

Use a good quality motor oil and change it regularly. I use a stright 30 weight in my 350ci Volvo. The gear oil to use is marine and this is massively important. Always fill the out drive from the drain plug leaving the top plug open to release the displaced air. I know it sounds weired but if filled from the top air gets trapped in the corners and you end up with not enough oil in the drive.
