Jizm means the gearbox oil.

The oil in the outboard leg is separate. It's purely for the transmission. You'll find a plug for filling and a plug for draining, try and find the manual to see how much oil it takes when replacing it. Sometimes helps to flush it through with oil, so do one oil change and then another after running the outboard for a day. Check the colour of the oil, if it's creamy and frothy it indicates water ingress.

Dog clutch is worn, you might be needing a new one & reverse gear too. Yo will need to pull the gear unit out of the casing.

New parts yes, 400 quid plus, a replacement gearbox might be a better bet

How much would I be looking at for one of those? The guy who sold it to me said it was replaced last year. Seems I've been well and truly had!
