Here's what you need to know about outboard lower units and why choosing the right lubricant is so critical.

LOG IN. Bought a used Mercury 9. Previous owner didn't recall exact year and seldom used motor. Looking to change the lower unit oil and not sure what to use.
The gear oil change gives you the chance to inspect the oil for evidence of internal damage. Ensure that the motor is vertical and is level from side to side, whether on your boat or a motor stand. If the motor has not been run within 30 minutes, connect a garden hose to the motor's flushing connection or to a motor flushing attachment.
