Are the Fibre washers on the gearbox top and bottom plugs just your standard fibre washers?

I did this last week - very messy! I used a 'normal' oil can with a thumb-pump mechanism. just put the tube in the drain hole and pump. Did the job well enough - a little slow, though. Definitely agree with warming the gear lube before use - it's very viscous.

Sorry to drag up an old thread but can't find the answer - is all gear oil the same or do you have to get specific types depending on your engine ?

Most outboard gear oils are , but they arent the same as general automotive gear oils, because the marine stuff has anti corrosion stuff in it incase your prop shaft gets a slight leak
