There is a plug in the nose cone but that's just for refilling. You remove the cone(three bolts) to drain the oil. Be careful not to pinch the o-ring when reinstalling.

thanks for the reply.thats actually the best most informative answer i have gotten on this subjetc and ive asked a few times now.i dont suppose u know where there are some pics of the procedure do u? do you just remove the nose cone and the oil falls out? and then put the cone back on and refill it? how much oil do u need to put in?
thanks for the help man...really!

Pull the steering and trim cables. Pull the reduction nozel. Remove the cone and elevate the nose of the ski. The oil will flow out. Check for water in the oil. If oil is clean reinstall cone(carefull with o-ring).
-if you can preasure test the pump w/threaded pop-off tester.
Fill the cone w/80W90 gear oil (about 3-4oz). Wrap the plug twice w/teflon tape and reinstall.

Yes to all your questions & refill to the top of the hole then reinstall plug.

Add the oil slow to let the air out and I use holymar thread sealant for the plug.

thanks guys,that makes it alot more clear to me.however my ski is in my brothers heated garage ona stand i made for it so i cant actually elevate the nose up to get the oil to drain out. so should i wait till i put it back on the trailer in the spring? or will the oil still flow out enough?
thanks again for all the help.this site is the best!

Majority of the oil will come out when you open the tailcone,I put tinfoil underneath to catch oil & flow towards a small oil catch pan.
