High performance gear lube is required in all Bravo and Alpha I Generation II stern drives. It is recommended for use in all older stern drives as well. Premium Blend and High Performance gear lube should never be mixed. Be sure to drain the unit completely if switching from one type of lube to the other.
It is better to change the oil and gear lube at the end of the season, prior to storage. Lubricants naturally accumulate moisture, combustion by-products, and other contaminants during use. It can be detrimental to store an engine or drive with large amounts of these contaminants present.
Because they are self-sacrificing, the anodes must be inspected often and replaced when 50% consumed.
Some suggested items would include a floating prop wrench, a spare prop and attaching hardware, spark plugs, belt(s), oil, power trim and steering fluid, High Performance gear lube, water separating fuel filter.
The drain system on your engine is NOT intended to replace full winterization. It is for extending your boating season by allowing the cooling system to be drained after use if there is a risk of light freezing weather and you will be boating the next day. For full-extended winter storage we recommend that an authorized dealer winterize your boat. Damage caused by freezing or improper winterization is not covered by the limited factory warranty.
If you store your stern drive installed on your boat, you should keep it in the down position. Otherwise, the rubber bellows in the transom assembly can become permanently deformed and fail.
