Tue, thanks. I have had a look at the manual tho and can't find it. (im probably blind). Do you work with Opti's then. Im amazed they reccommend a rebuild then, I think it's qite early. I suppose it depends who has owned it.

Yes I do work with Opti's and have a certificate to prove it ( ohh get me. ).

We only have a few in our area but we are the service centre in Torbay for them and have all the gadgets and gumph for all of them. I want one for my boat eventually or two would be better. (Twin 75s or 90s....... Opps dreaming now ) . IMHO better than the Fichts. Lighter too.

The 75/90/115 are recomended to use Quicksilver Premium Plus TCW3 or Optimax 2 oil.

The 135/150/175/200/225 are recomended to use Quicksilver Premium Plus TCW3 oil.

As the 75/90/115 are new out the literature we have recieved for them includes the Optimax oil which is quite new to the market. I would imagine the new 135/150/175/200/225 can also use the Optimax oil.

That's good 'cos Wavehumper's just bought a 5000 gallon barrel of the stuff for his 150 Opti

Are you going to tell him it was un-necessary or shall I?

That must have cost nearly as much as a new engine
