We just did one of these polls for oil and outdrives ??????

AmSOIL in even my generator,,,and redline in my gearboxes and drives ,

Mr demenor be careful being a guiene pig with that NAPA VALVOLINE OIL I know some horror stories about that kind of stuff and straight 50 is way to heavy unless you have no bearings at all or top fuel clearances ,really

JUST USE ANY GOOD NORMAL WEIGHT SYN. AND YOU'LL BE FINE MY 2 CENTS IS STAY AWAY FROM CONV. OIL IN BOATS ,,,but this subject has been killed on this board in the last 5 months
good luck

Thumbs up Royal Purple

The only oil that we use at Martin Offshore is Royal Purple unless customer wants otherwise...It goes in all my race boats, my trucks, everything!
