etec 2017 250hp model e250dpxab.

 

I'm changing the lower unit oil for the first time this fall, new boat to me. A few questions

 

Recoomend lower unit oil type ?

Use 2 bottles and the pump kit  for the gear oil change per the factory video. You will have left over oil for the next oil change.

 

#311598 are the gasket washers for the drain screws

Re: lower unit oil change

  Yes, purchase 2 bottles as the motor takes just over 1 of them.

 

Parts are puchased from your local Evinrude dealer or from online dealers or at shop2.evinrude.com
