+1 - if in doubt

However this issue really only occurs when it comes to mixing synthetic and mineral oils.

NEVER EVER use automotive gear oil in an outboard motor! Because marine gear oil has been made so that if water gets into the g/h the oil will keep the water aqway from the gears and bearings , thats the thery anyway.It is also not advisable to mix oils either gear,engine or any oils.

Hypoid is the type of gear in the outboard gearbox. Car hyoid oil seems to meet all the requirements for some marine use, including the water mixing requirements.. I.e. it readly mixes with water to form an emulsion rather than seperating. The spec On the water ingress marine oils is covered by the automotive oil specs in many cases.

So anyway, that all worked out very well. There was VERY little oil in the box, so charged with Quicksilver and away to the tank where she sprang to life in short order. After that it was down to the sea where it got christened on the back of a friends SIB. It did surprisingly well for a long shaft. Another 8 hours on 25:1 and a gear oil change and she'll be right.

A very nice day on the water today in Deep Six - cracking start to 2013.

Cheers donegaldan!

Might have to disagree with this. To my knowledge there isn't an oil made that will still work when it is contaminated with water. It's the specification of the oil that is important not the brand name. In a clutched unit the destruction is caused by the water contaminated oil generating steam inside which lifts the bonding elements Alan P

Like a Tesco's 100% Beefburger or a Sainsbury's 100% Beefburger?
