9.8 Gear Lube

Good afternoon! Changing out my 150’s gear lube and was going to do the 9.8 at the same time. New boat to me by the way. Anyway the 9.8 had blue colored lube, should I use the same fluid as my 150 or is there a different brand for the tohatsu motors? Thanks for any help!

You can use the Evinrude HPF Pro in both your 150 hp and the 9.8 hp.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.

Re: 9.8 Gear Lube

Thanks Bill assumed so but thought I’d better ask considering different colors.
