If it is a 2 stroke lay it on any side you want.

If it is a 4 stroke there will most likely be one side you should lay it on. Should be marked on the outboard. No need to remove the oil if you put it on the correct side.

Some modern 4 strokes can be laid on either side. Have a look at the instructions.

This is another reason (apart from lightness) why 2 strokes are often preferred over 4 strokes

I like to put a cloth or similar under the power head so it is slightly higher than the Prop

I use a off cut of carpet underlay 2 or 3 layers folded over. Keeps the power head raised and you wont scratche the top cover. Or if you know of any family moving there child from a moses cot use that matrees .
