I am trying to change the stern drive lubricant on my 1999 5.7GS/DP Volvo Penta.
I have the Clymer Volvo Penta Stern Drive Shop Manual 1994-2000. On page 92, figure 30, it incorrectly shows the location of the drain plug for the stern drive lubricant as being on the outside, port-side of the lower unit, below the prop shaft. On my unit, there is no drain plug there, only a smooth metal surface.
Can anyone tell me where the drain plug is? Remove the props to expose?
Gary hit the nail on the head. The diagram in the Clymer manual is for the SX outdrive. Volvo uses a different size thread than Merc does. You will need an adapter fitting if you buy the standard QuickSilver branded gearlube pump.
All it does is change the size of the nipple, female on one end, screws onto the pump end, and male on the other to screw into the drain hole. I'll see if I can take some measurements from the one I have as well as a pic for you.
