This is what I have used (Castrol) I would check with the merc mechanics. I was told not to overfill it. Change once per year.

Thanks Rob, I see what I think is the drain plug, at the bottom of the of the unit, right behind the blower snout, dead center in the middle. I was thinking all I had to do was just lower the trailer jack all the down and off the block. Do you remove your whipples from the engine when you change your whipple oil?
Thanks,
Dean

Strip,
Thanks for the detailed info. I'm going to have to devise a little drain/funnel/catcher thing to catch the oil as it drains out. I'm also assuming that I fill 8 ozs or till I see it about 1/2 way up in the sight glass?
Thanks,
Dean

What is the engine oil qty for this engine? Is it just like an HP500, since they both use a GM 502 block?
Thanks,
Dean

Default Water Pick Up

They drilled out some holes on the nosecone, opened up some of the vertical holes and plugged the top three. I alos rerouted the water lines as per Dustin using a separate pickup. The outdrive only feeds the motor. Part of his kit includes some larger fittings to allow more water to flow. The problem was intermittent so it was difficult to track. The boat now runs great.
Relax,

What does your pick up look like and where is it installed? If it's produced by a specific manufacturer, I'd really like to get the specific details. Thanks
