TinBoats member captain belly has a great video on YouTube for changing lower unit gear lube. He posted it in our forum, but I thought this one is worthy of a post on the homepage. I have never done it myself, but after watching this video, it does not seem that hard at all. If it can save you a few bucks and your handy, then why not, right?
Changing Lower Unit Gear Lube
Captain belly also mentions a universal Atwood gear lube pump that you can buy on Amazon for really cheap. He does a great job explaining the assembly of the pump for the total Newb. Pay close attention to this part of the video.
This is an awesome beginner video for changing your gear oil. The video is only 4 minutes long but covers almost all the questions and things you might encounter. I highly suggest you head on over to Captain Bellys YouTube page and subscribe to his channel. It is one of the coolest channels I have seen on YouTube and it’s very informative.
