Re: lower unit

You didn't specify which year or model 250 you have, there are two different gearcases depending on the  year or if one has been replaced with the other.


The L2 Lightning gearcase holds 32.5 oz.


The M2 Magnum gearcase holds 38.9 oz.


It would be best to post any other Evinrude E-TEC service questions or comments in the appropriate forum and not in this one.

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.
