HI 2 stroke autolube outboards

Hi everyone, new to the forum.. thinking of putting a yamaha 40hp autolube on my Honwave T40 ..

My question is,

Can I lay the Autolube outboard down on its side like you can with normal 2 stroke engines? I will be carrying it around in the car so obviously I will have to lay it down, but don't wanna cause damage... Thanks.

Welcome to the forum.

No problem laying it down on its side. Ideally you want the powerhead slightly higher than the leg. One word of warning is the Autolube reservoirs can leak, so check the cap for tightness and use a tarpaulin in the car. 2-stroke oil will be a sod to shift for any spills.
