    Changing 06 pump grease to oil-need recommendation/amount

    Guys , I saw a post by snoman a few weeks back, but can't find now. Search engine sometimes is not the best. But I need to know type oil used like Mobil 1 or Lucas, and how many ounces. I also notice by impeller stud was blue, I guess indicating it has heated up before. Comments

    It would be nice if someone added this mod to how to section.

    I use Mobil 1 gear oil in both my pumps,No issues what so ever and the oil always comes out clean...I have also used Royal Purple with no issues either..Some of the off shore CC racers use trans fluid BUT i dont recommend that for our apps...When you first convert i would use 2 1/2 to 3 ounces, NO more..Then when you change out or tweek a prop,refill it with 2 ounces....
