Tools To Change Your Outboard Lower Unit Oil

Updated: Jul 25, 2022

This is a simple task most any boater can complete. On a difficulty level I put it at a 2 out of 10. Just make sure you get it completely full and purchase the right lube and kit.

Changing Lube Oil In Outboard Foot

1. Screwdriver Set

Screwdriver will be needed to Remove the Oil Drain Screws from Lower Unit.

2. Hand Impact Driver

The Hand Impact Driver will be needed to Loosen the Lower Unit Oil Drain screws if you are unable to get it loose with a regular screwdriver. I usually just use this first to loosen the Drain Screw. A little tap is all it takes.

3. Hammer

The Hammer will be needed in conjunction with the Hand Impact Driver. Just do not hit it to hard.

4. Lower Unit Gear Oil Pump

The Lower Unit Gear Oil Pump will be needed to pump the new oil into the Lower Unit.

5. Oil Drain Pan

Use the Oil Drain Pan to hold the old oil that is drained from the Lower Unit.


Lower Unit Screw Seals

You will need to get the ones that are specially designed for your Outboard. You can use the old one but I recommend replacing yearly.


I hope this list helps you get started on draining your Lower Unit Oil. Thanks for stopping by. Check out my other project blog posts at www.top5toolstouse.com
