Default Redline Drive Fluid Source????

Where do you buy the Redline Outdrive Fluid from. I am in michigan and looking for a source for my new drives. Also which one would you reccomend for the IMCO Extreme SC?

On the same subject, when you're switching from Merc Hi Performance lube to Redline can you just drain the drive and resovoir and replace with the new stuff or do you need to flush the drive somehow?

Summit Racking has pretty good prices on RedLine- I usually buy it from a local speed shop- a little higher but more convenient.
If Wally jumps in on this thread, he has a wholesaler that gives him a great price on bulk purchase- I just didn't write down their #
I switched a few years ago to ShockProof Heavy- I was told to drain thoroughly, but not necessary to flush (used to use Hi-Perf)
This is also the stuff recommended by TCM in their drives.
IMHO, RedLine (or Royal Purple) are as good as it gets in outdrive lube!

Talking RedLine Oil

Its www.racerwholesale.com
they dont have it listed on their website but when you buy the oil by the case you get 10% off. (somethings better then nothing!) They all pretty much charge the same price for the oil no matter where you buy it from as i have found. But if your not in a BIG hurry they are tops fot it!.

actually i would call redline directly and ask for their recomendation. www.redlineoil.com thats what i did and told them what i was gonna be doing and they told me to use the Shockproof Heavy because of the loading and unloading the drives will be doing going in and out of the water.

You want the Shock proof heavy recomend by several oso members and I called Redline and was also there recomendation.
Most local speed shops cary it about 8 bucks a quart you will need 3 with a std merc and resevour. It will mix with old stuff so you dont need to flush the drive.

You can also buy it from Teague in gallon containers and save a little bit of money.
